Certainly Don’t Want to Sit Next to This Minnesota Man on a Plane
Over the years, I've been seated on planes next to not-so-desirable people. Some talk all the time or have to constantly get up and crawl over you to go to the restroom. Once, I had a 5-year-old kid perform a 3-hour drum solo on the back of my seat.
Another time on a flight from Fargo to Orlando, I was seated next to a young priest who was extremely unhappy that he had been assigned to a small Catholic church in the middle of nowhere North Dakota.
He continued to order shots and offered me shot after shot. I thought that I may as well keep drinking with him since the thought of listening to his problems for the entire trip sober would have been excruciating.
But I've never had a revolting experience like this teen had. I don't know what it is with some people that they would think actions like this are okay. Baffles me!
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office District of Minnesota, a Minneapolis man named Neeraj Chopra was found guilty in federal court of sexually abusing a teenager that was seated next to him on a flight.
It's alleged that 40-year-old Chopra when seated next to the teen on a flight from Boston back to Minneapolis that Chopra would cover his lap with a blanket with part of the blanket on the teen's leg and would inappropriately touch the teen.
Despite the teen's pleas to stop, the touching continued.
Chopra faces a prison term of up to 2 years and a fine of $250,000 when he is sentenced at a yet to be determined date.
Maybe when he gets to prison, he can show all his prison buddies his little puppet show.
