“During the flight, Tilton allegedly placed his hand on the victim’s bare calf. Tilton continued to touch the victim’s thigh, and eventually began rubbing the victim’s genitals over the victim’s shorts. The victim did not react, or look at Tilton, out of shock and fear,” prosecutors said.
They said the victim left to go to the bathroom in order to avoid further contact, but the sexual behavior continued when he returned to his seat.
While the FBI did not release the name of the college, Christian Bible College of Louisiana on Paris Ave. lists Tilton as its president. He is also an acting pastor at a church in the Irish Channel.
Cornelius Tilton Victim
This is a man I have traveled with and spent many hours with. I am horrified and stand with the teen survivor. Bringing forward abuse, particularly in religious contexts and when the perpetrator is a person of power, is incredibly hard. https://t.co/cllfcIEBCp

The teen was with a group of students on a religious trip to Israel, and Tilton accompanied them as an official guide, giving speeches.
