NEW YORK: An American couple, who couldn’t restrain their passions and indulged in lewd and sexual acts on a flight from Medford (Oregon) to Las Vegas, face jail for their obscene behaviour in public.
In a complaint filed this week in U.S. District Court, Jessica Stroble, 33, and Christopher Martin grew intimate immediately after an Allegiant Airlines flight took off for Nevada in late-June, reports the Smoking Gun.
Passengers, including children, were bewildered by the couple’s public display of their intimacy.
In the court complaint, a passenger sitting across from the couple reported witnessing Stroble “perform oral sex and manually stimulate the genitalia of a male passenger sitting in the window seat next to her’’ and after they finished Stroble “wiped off her mouth while the male put his penis back inside his pants.’’
Another passenger is reported as complaining that the “male passenger had his hand on the back of the female’s neck and ‘was in his own world.’”
The complaint say the couple stopped their lewd act during drink and snack service on the one-and-half-hour flight. But they resumed after the service was over when Stroble performed oral sex on Martin by putting her head on his lap.
On seeing this, a flight attendant told them to mind their behaviour. They stopped briefly but resumed their lewd behaviour as Martin “pulled the female’s shirt down and began kissing the female’s exposed breast.’’
On landing at Las Vegas, the couple were arrested and charged with engaging in “lewd, indecent, and obscene acts on an airplane.”
The couple face 90 days in jail and a fine if they are convicted.
When Stroble, who works at a Medford beauty salon, was approached for her comment, she said she was unaware that charges had been filed against her.
She declined to comment on her relationship with Martin, except that they are not married and that she has no contact information for him.
