2 plead to disorderly conduct in airplane sex case

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 06:33 a.m. HST, Oct 18, 2013

LAS VEGAS » 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.

Simply put, to discourage and deter others from doing something like this, make it a Federal offense with a minimum of 2yrs in prison.

No, our economy can be in a "decline", whereas a seat will have the ability to "Recline".

I don't think that particular move qualifies for the Mile-High Club.

No, that does not qualify for the exclusive club, where only a few of us have been. Jailed, fined, charged, and no entry, what a waste.

What is wrong with these two. If they really wanted to go to town on the plane all they had to do was go to the restroom lock the door behind them and take care of business together. As long as it is behind closed doors on the plane and they don't make a scene that would not have landed them in jail and in the newspapers. When flight attendants are asked about this they say it happens regularly but they cannot and will not do anything if they do it behind the locked bathroom door.

If I was sitting next to them I would have pulled the guy's hair and sat on his face with my pants down. Turnabout is fair play.

Please dont book any flights next to me. I have a slight fear of tight places, and if your gonna be sitting on my face, I might not be able to breath.

Do you intend to engage in oral sex on an airplane in full view of me? If not you'll be okay. I'm a perfectly normal guy, It's just that when people act indecently like that, I have the urge to release the contents of my bowels on their faces.

We're not talking about a flight to Kaua'i here. You know how long it takes to get to the mainland. You really should relieve that urge before boarding, otherwise when it strikes and you head for the restroom, you might very well find it "otherwise occupied" by some nesting lovebirds.
