OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma — What a creepy old man.
An 83-year-old former school teacher who’d been sentenced to 60 years in prison for molesting a child only to be released early, has been busted again for groping an employee or a sex shop where he went to buy porn.
Police in Oklahoma City say Bobby Otto Powers groped the employee of the Hustler Hollywood shop in Oklahoma City in late November after pushing $10 into her hand, and then pointed to some red lingerie and said he wanted to see her in it, police said.
The whole episode was caught by surveillance cameras, but when cops caught up to Powers, he said he didn’t remember laying hands on the woman, and that if he did so, it was accidental, the Oklahoman newspaper reported.
He did admit he went to the shop several times a week to buy porno videos.
When Powers was 70-years-old, in 2005, he was sentenced to 60 years behind bars for molesting a 9-year-old girl over many years. But in 2010, he was released when the state parole board granted him a medical commutation because it was believed he was sick and dying, with less than six months to live.
Even then-state governor, Brad Henry, signed off on Powers’ release.
He is now facing three felony counts of sexual battery and prosecutors say they will try to send him back to prison.
His victim told the Oklahoman that she was stunned that Powers was out walking the streets as she had thought he had died in prison.
“That’s crazy,” she said. “He, like, freaking messed my life up, a good part of it. I had a lot of mental issues for a long time. And still kind of do.”
