LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas man has pleaded guilty to assaulting a flight attendant on a flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Little Rock last year.
Federal prosecutors say 40-year-old Leon Anderson of Maumelle pleaded guilty Wednesday to interfering with a flight attendant.
Prosecutors say Anderson grabbed a flight attendant several times during the February 2020 flight and made inappropriate sexual comments to him.
The flight attendant notified the captain, who then notified law enforcement.
Anderson faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he’s sentenced.
