Enio Socorro Zayas has been banned from molesting flight attendants for six months. The 50-year-old Canadian gentleman, who was convicted of assaulting an American Airlines flight attendant by groping her buttocks, will serve his sentence in a U.S. penitentiary.
According to an affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, the flight attendant, believing Zayas was asleep, placed a snack package on his lap. When she turned away, the flight attendant "felt a hand grip the bottom of her thigh and move upwards towards the lower portion of her buttocks before rubbing firmly from side to side," the affidavit reads.
Once the plane landed in Miami, the flight attendant spoke to law enforcement. The investigating officer also spoke with another passenger who was sitting in a nearby aisle seat and corroborated the stewardess' account, saying she saw Zayas touch the woman's buttocks inappropriately with a "sick" expression on his face.
