In-Flight Sex Duo

AUGUST 8--A couple who allegedly engaged in a series of “lewd, indecent, and obscene” sex acts on a plane bound for Las Vegas are facing federal criminal charges, The Smoking Gun has learned.

According to a complaint filed this week in U.S. District Court, Jessica Stroble, 33, and Christopher Martin began getting frisky after an Allegiant Airlines flight departed Medford, Oregon for Nevada in late-June.

As detailed in the raunchy misdemeanor complaint, a passenger sitting across from the duo on the 90-minute flight observed Stroble “perform oral sex and manually stimulate the genitalia of a male passenger sitting in the window seat next to her.” After the act was completed, the witness watched as Stroble “wiped off her mouth while the male put his penis back inside his pants.”

Stroble, a beauty salon worker, and Martin, a vineyard owner, are pictured in the above Facebook photos.

A second passenger, who reported seeing Martin’s exposed penis, told an FBI agent that the “male passenger had his hand on the back of the female’s neck and ‘was in his own world.'”

After Stroble reportedly cleaned up and Martin’s penis was no longer in the upright and locked position in row 16, fellow passengers reported that the couple resumed the intimate contact. Martin, witnesses told the FBI, placed his hand down Stroble’s pants and began “rubbing it up and down and the female assisted him.”

The duo, however, was not finished.

Following drink and snack service, Stroble allegedly performed oral sex on Martin for a second time. A passenger who watched the couple in action told a flight attendant, “This is not the sex education I wanted to give my teenage sons," reported FBI Agent James Mollica.

After observing Stroble’s head in Martin’s lap, the airline employee approached the duo and directed them to stop. The flight attendant told an FBI agent that it appeared “based on the movement...the female was giving the male oral sex.”

But even that reprimand was not enough to slow Stroble and Martin.

Two passengers told the FBI that Martin then “pulled the female’s shirt down and began kissing the female’s exposed breast.” The witnesses notified a passing fight attendant, who told the couple to stop (which they finally did).

Upon landing, Stroble and Martin were escorted off the plane and questioned by Las Vegas police. In a complaint filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas, they were charged with engaging in “lewd, indecent, and obscene acts on an airplane." If convicted, Stroble and Martin each face up to 90 days in jail and a fine.

Reached today by a TSG reporter at the Medford beauty salon where she works, Stroble said she was unaware that charges had been filed against her.

After being given a description of the complaint’s allegations, Stroble claimed, “None of that happened.” She declined to expand on the nature of her relationship with Martin, other than to say that they are not married and that she has no contact information for him. (4 pages)
