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 didn’t 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.”

the needle just snapped off my creep-ometer seriously, that's shudder-worthy.

There's a serious poetic-justice potential here, wherein Aksal and a large inmate reenact the situation, but the inmate is the one fondling and whispering "kiss me..."

This is, at a minimum, criminal or sexual assault. It might be rape if his finger penetrated, and also attempted rape if not. This guy needs to be Bubba’s beotch for a while.

—If convicted of the sexual abuse charge, Aksal could face life in prison and a $250,000 fine. He’s been ordered held without bail as a possible flight risk.—

Wait. LIFE IN PRISON?!

WTF?!

He groped her. That has to be a typo.

One of the funniest things I’ve read all day.

Actually, all female airline passengers are easy. The LaRouche people took a poll.

According to the complaint, Aksal was interviewed by law enforcement officers when the plane landed and read his rights. Nonetheless, according to the complaint, Aksal admitted groping the woman, but claimed it was consensual.

Of course it was consensual. She is, after all, a slut-prostitute; otherwise, she would have had her face bagged and been wearing a proper burkha. He naturally intended to pay her afterward for her services, as a man can't be too careful: only a fool pays in advance. (Do I really needd to add the /S for this?)

Good thing she hadn’t popped an Ambien for the flight, or she may not have woken up and caught him.

Not a typo; but "groping" is a misnomer.

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

Amazingly, the gent is probably Muslim!

“Kevin Carlucci, Aksal’s 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.

This is, at a minimum, criminal or sexual assault. It might be rape if his finger penetrated, and also attempted rape if not.

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.

Kay. Hey, lets say he fondled her and even “penetrated”.

Life in prison? Seriously?

1) Article says "could face life in prison" ... means that's the maximum penalty for the charge. Doesn't mean he'll get it.

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’ll say!

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.

I agree. Very dangerous. He needs to be removed from civil society.

Trouble with creeps like this is that when they get released, they haven't really changed. And as registered sex offenders, they can't easily live in the urban areas they previously infested ... so they end up living out in the sticks. Near me.

I have multiple motivations to exercise my 2A rights ...

“beotch”.what is a beotch

“Beotch,” “beyotch,” is another way of saying bitch without actually saying it. It also makes it a two-syllable word in case you have to make it fit cadence in a verse.

Personally, I think guys like this should be castrated and set free. The recidivism is ridiculously low in such cases.
