NJ man jailed for sex assault on Continental jet

Published: Mon, August 15, 2011 @ 3:03 p.m.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey man who fondled a sleeping female passenger on a flight from Hong Kong to Newark will spend a year in prison.

Sixty-five-year-old Ramesh Advani, of Berkeley Heights, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Newark.

Prosecutors say Advani was seated next to the victim on an overnight Continental Airlines flight in May 2010. Advani admitted he reached under a blanket covering the woman and assaulted her. She awoke and alerted the flight crew, and Advani was detained when the plane landed.

Advani had pleaded guilty in April to a charge of abusive sexual contact.

He also has been fined $10,000 and must serve five years of supervised release once he’s freed.

So it wasn't as good for her as it was for him . . .,

Continental Airline's marketing slogan is "Work Hard. Fly Right." Seems it translated a tad differently into Ramesh's home language. (Yep ... I chose not to say his "native tongue.")

I have to wonder if this lady was one of your wives, mothers or daughters if you would appreciate the stupid and insensitive comments that you two IDIOTS made here. Both of you should be banned from making comments on here.

What_the_Heck :

Most of my relatives would have caused physical injury to Ramesh Advani . . .. So you are offended over the ridicule of Ramesh Advani ? He is imported New Jersey trash !


Two passengers witnessed the alleged sexual assault and kicked the woman’s chair in an attempt to wake her up. She awoke and alerted the flight crew. Advani was detained when the plane landed and taken into custody by the FBI.

OK. This IDIOTIC rebuttal is supposed to change that fact that you made an insensitive and stupid comment about her being assaulted. You never have anything constructive to say about anything. YOU SHOULD BE BANNED DUE TO YOUR IGNORANCE!!!!!!!

BTW, stan, I suspect you and your relatives would be too busy making STUPID REMARKS to do anything.

8427 comments!!!!! Whats the matter, his round about battery won't take him anywhere so he sits and pokes fun at others misery. He needs to get a life. What will he think when somthing happens to one he cares about and stupid comments are made.He is just a bitter person that blows only ill wind. I have no use for someone like him.

Being as I am a man, that makes very little sense. But thats the whole problem when people make comments when they don't have any of the facts. stan is just an IDIOT. Those are the facts proven by his comments.
