Couple accused of in-flight sex act fined $250 each

LAS VEGAS (AP) – A man and a woman accused of engaging in oral sex on a flight from Medford, Ore., to Las Vegas have pleaded guilty in federal court to misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges.

Christopher Martin's lawyer, Lawrence Hill, said Thursday his client was remorseful, had suffered personally and professionally, and hoped to put the incident behind him.

Attorney Michael Pariente, representing Jessica Stroble of Medford, didn't immediately respond to messages.

U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge George Foley in Las Vegas fined Martin and Stroble $250 each.

The pair were issued summonses in Las Vegas charging them with lewd, indecent and obscene acts on an airplane following the June 21 Allegiant Air flight.

An FBI affidavit says passengers saw Martin exposing himself and engaging in acts with Stroble despite warnings from flight attendants.
