Man Jailed For Peeing On Woman On Plane

A 28-year-old man was sentenced to three weeks in prison for urinating on a 66-year-old woman during a Continental Airlines flight last month from Los Angeles to Honolulu, officials said Wednesday.

Jerome Kenneth Kingzio, a resident of the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, was sentenced after pleading guilty Tuesday to an assault charge in U.S. District Court.

The victim was headed to Hawaii on March 21 for a scuba diving vacation and was watching an in-flight movie when Kingzio stood up next to her aisle seat and began urinating on her midway through Continental Flight 3.

She pushed Kingzio back and he continued to urinate, according to the FBI's criminal complaint. Kingzio, seated a row behind the woman, had been drinking on the flight and annoying other passengers.

U.S. Attorney Edward Kubo Jr. said the woman reported that not only was her entire vacation ruined, but she continues to suffer emotionally from the incident.

The offense was witnessed by a special agent with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, who was seated a row behind Kingzio.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie Kobayashi also placed Kingzio under six months of supervised release following his incarceration. The judge also ordered him to undergo substance abuse treatment.
