Prosecutor: Odulele cried and apologised when confronted by the boy’s mother
A pastor who fondled a teenage boy while he slept and touched a young preacher while sharing a hotel bed has been imprisoned for eight months.
At his sentencing last week, Dr Albert Odulele was given eight months and six months for both offences, to run concurrently, and placed on the sex offenders’ register for five years.
Woolwich Crown Court heard how Odulele, founder of the Glory House International Pentecostal church, was known to share hotel beds while travelling the world with an entourage of security and pastors.
In around 2003, he was said to have put his hand in the underwear of a boy he had “assumed paternal influence” over, and fondled him after the boy had fallen asleep – they had been watching television.
