Youth pastor Jeffery London was arrested last night at his Lauderdale Lakes home on suspicion of sexual abusing a boy for about a decade, becoming the second Broward youth pastor to be arrested this week on molestation charges.

London, 48, was arrested shortly after returning home from conducting Bible study at the Bible Church of God in Fort Lauderdale, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Police say the alleged victim's mother left him to live with London when he was 8 years old because she was "facing hard financial times."

For the next decade, police say London sexually abused the boy while the two were living together.

When London wasn't working as a youth pastor, the sheriff's office says he worked for at least one school -- he was the dean of students at Eagle Charter Academy in Lauderdale Lakes between 2003 and 2009.

The BSO says it's possible London has worked at other area schools and churches.

Last week, it was 41-year-old Raymond Vincent who fit the youth pastor/alleged child molester bill, according to the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.

According to that police report, Vincent lured a girl under age 12 into his apartment with food and molested her -- a move he pulled on a couple of occasions.

"Due to the fact that Vincent is a youth pastor," Fort Lauderdale Police Detective Travis Mandell says, investigators "are concerned" that there may be other victims.

Vincent is being held without bond in the Broward County Jail and has been joined by London, who's facing five charges related to sexual abuse.

Genesis 39 - Potiphar's wife accused Joseph of trying to be with her, a lie which landed Joseph in Jail. The hand of the Lord was on Joseph, and I truly believe the hand of the Lord is on Jeff. I only say, wait until the TRUTH is revealed, the word of God is ture, be very careful how you judge. All involved need our prayers.

I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Superb work!

Glad they are BOTH in jail.  Their victims have received life sentences because of the crimes performed on them.  Both abusers deserve the same sentences, LIFE without parole.  As more victims come forward, and they will, may the prosceuting attornies stand strong with no plea bargains.

Child predators rarely have only one victim.

Lets hope that if others, who have witnessed, suspected or may have been harmed by Jeffery London, will find the courage and strength to speak up, and contact law enforcement. They are the proper officials to investigate sex crimes against kids not church officials.
