A 20-something woman was sentenced to jail for assault on a plane bound for Vietnam when she was stopped by a hostess while drunk and smoking.
Incheon District Court judge Lee Jae-hwan said on Thursday that he sentenced A (25), who was charged with violating the Aviation Security Act, to a prison term of April and a one-year suspended sentence. He was indicted on August 21 at 11:30 p.m. on charges of being drunk and smoking in the toilet of the Eastar Airlines flight bound for Hanoi, Vietnam. He also kicked a boat and attacked a plane crew member at Eastar Airlines when he took a video with his cellphone to prevent smoking on board and secure evidence.
" The defendant may have intentionally avoided the trial after the indictment, " Lee said, adding, " It seems that the defendant committed the crime by drinking alcohol while suffering from depression. " " The accused showed remorse by admitting the crime in court, and considered the fact that he did not have a bigger accident as he was quickly overwhelmed by the crew at the time of the incident. "
