NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) Air travel is tough enough without having to worry about bad behavior from fellow passengers.
A North Bergen man is accused of sexually abusing a woman who fell asleep during a five-hour United Airlines flight from Phoenix to Newark Liberty Airport.
Bawer Aksal, 48, was arrested Tuesday when the plane landed.
According to prosecutors, Aksal was seated next to a woman who had the window seat. They didnt know each other.
At one point during the flight, prosecutors said the woman fell asleep. When she woke up, prosecutors said Aksal had one hand in her shorts and another in her shirt.
According to the FBI complaint, Aksal, who was breathing heavy whispered to the victim Kiss me.

“Maybe he mistook the woman for Sandra Fluke?”
Post of the day!
According to the complaint, Bawer Aksal reached under a jacket across her seat and into her shorts, "with his fingers penetrating her vaginal opening and anus," according to the complaint. He also creepily whispered to her "Kiss me," at which point she shoved him off and reported the incident. Aksal admitted to touching her "but claimed the Victim forced his hand into her vagina." nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/08/jersey-man-accused-of-groping-woman-on-jersey-man-accused-of-groping-woman-on-plane
Either he’s really quick or she is a very sound sleeper.
Good catch. I know we cracked down on behavior during flights after 9/11, but that is ridiculous.
Man, that is one heavy sleeper! I can’t even sneak a kiss in on the wife when she is asleep.
Amazingly, the gent is probably Muslim!
“Kevin Carlucci, Aksals public defender, told the judge Aksal has no previous criminal record, is a dual United States and Turkish citizen and has U.S. property that could be used to secure bond.”
Ok, but still, LIFE?!
Does this mean that if he did that stuff AFTER killing her he would only get ten years or so for the killing and nothing for the fondling since she was dead?
If you get my drift.
Unfortunately, your joke is many people’s serious proposal around these parts.
What a turkey!!
Assault and battery for certain.
Gross Sexual Imposition as well, since he was going for 'intimate areas'.
Any penetration, however slight, would constitute rape.
That's more than just groping.
I just wanna kiss you.
—That’s more than just groping.—
Kay. Hey, lets say he fondled her and even “penetrated”.
Life in prison? Seriously?
2) OK ... you're sleeping on a plane ... you wake up and the guy in the next seat has his finger up your XXXXXX, and he's whispering in your ear. Whatcha gonna do? ("Break his wrist" comes to mind ...)
—Whatcha gonna do? (”Break his wrist” comes to mind ...)—
I would have no problem with giving the guy ten years. For starters, he’s so narcissistic that he thought she would like it. He has absolutely NO empathy for the perspective of someone “not him”.
You can bet he spends a lot of his time watching pr0n too. I used to watch it in theaters in the mid-70’s. Even as a 20 year old I assumed the women hated it even as they acted like they wanted it. It was comedic to me.
The fact that a man of his years was motivated to do what he did is really hard to imaging. I consider him dangerous.
