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.
