(Memphis) A Memphis mother claims she got much more than just treatment for her daughter on a recent visit to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

The 30-year-old mother told police that she was at the hospital while her 10-year-old participated in a sleep study on June 4th.

The mother reported to hospital security and police that technician Adewale Osinloye pulled her “body towards his chest to hug her” and then “grabbed the victim’s buttocks and swept both of his hands on both of her buttocks in an upward motion.”

The 30-year-old later identified Osinloye in a photo lineup.

Osinloye is charged with sexual battery and is out of jail on a $5,000 bond.

Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital representative Sara Burnett said Osinloye worked for the hospital for a couple of years and has been fired. She said security is working with MPD and that Le Bonheur officials “are taking this claim very seriously.”

Osinloye could not be reached for comment. He doesn’t have a prior criminal record under that name in Shelby County. He is due in court next month.
