A 28-year-old man traveling aboard a JetBlue flight from New York City to Salt Lake City Thursday faces two federal charges after he allegedly molested a minor seated next to him.
According to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court, the man began talking to the 17-year-old girl and was soon in a "deep conversation" with her that concluded with the exchange of a hug. During the conversation the man ordered a double Jack Daniels and Coke and let the teenager take a few sips of the drink.
At some point, the man draped a blanket over himself and the girl and they cuddled, the court filing states. They also exchanged some kisses before the teenager fell asleep. She awoke some time later and found the man was holding her down with one hand and touching her breast with the other.
