An Oregon man has been ordered to continue detainment for the sex abuse against a minor girl during an American Airlines flight last week. US Magistrate Judge John Jelderks gave his verdict on the involvement of Chad Cameron Camp, 26, into the matter. Defense lawyer Ralph
Defense lawyer Ralph Gzik did not intervene when a prosecutor suggested keeping Camp in Portland for the time being. “I just don’t want to say anything wrong,” Camp said during the hearing as quoted by Columbian.
The FBI based on its investigation stated that the man indicated his evil wishes even before the flight took off. The statement released by the bureau stated that the American Airlines flight en route to Portland from Dallas was half-empty. The
The Washington Post reported that Camp was offered another spacious seat but he refused and chose to remain in the middle seat, which was just next to a 13-year-old girl. “No, I’m fine,” he said, according to a criminal complaint obtained by the media outlet.
The complaint stated that when a flight attendant returned to serve passengers with drink, she noticed that the man’s hand was on the teen’s crotch. The report also mentioned that the attendant saw “a single tear coming down the victim’s cheek.” The flight attendants did not tolerate the violation and they separated Camp for the rest of the trip. As soon as the flight landed and Camp exited the plane, he was arrested by police. FBI confirmed that he was charged with abusive sexual contact allegation.
Brent Goodfellow, the lawyer of the minor, claimed that the airline failed to protect its passenger from sex abuse. “This was 30 minutes of hell for this young lady,” the lawyer said, ignoring the fact that her client was protected by an American Airlines flight attendant. “If I have my tray table down or my seat back two inches during the improper time, those guys are going to be on me immediately,” Goodfellow told WP.
“This girl got abused for 30 minutes and no one was to be found.”
