The outspoken pastor of First Southern Baptist Church has agreed to correct code violations on the site where he plans to build a homeless shelter at his Buena Park church. The Rev. Wiley Drake first attracted attention in 1996 when neighbors began complaining that he was letting homeless people stay at the church. City inspectors cited him for building and health code violations, and in 1997 he was convicted of four misdemeanors and ordered to complete 1,500 hours of community service.
