Federal prosecutors announced the sentence in federal court in New Mexico on Wednesday when 43-year-old Alton James Johnson also attacked a second flight attendant who tried to intervene.

Prosecutors admitted that Johnson, who lives in Yuba City north of Sacramento, was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident on the plane, but acknowledged that he was still in control of his actions.
According to court filings, he agreed to plead guilty to simple assault and serve six months under a deal where prosecutors dropped a felony charge that would require him to register as a sex offender.
According to the plea deal, Johnson “forced” the flight attendant’s hips when he called the flight attendant “nice” and groped for the third time after being told to stop.
Prosecutors said Johnson forcibly grabbed the second flight attendant’s arm when a male flight attendant intervened and asked Johnson to keep his hands to himself.
“The defendant angrily responded by holding the (male flight attendant’s) arm and saying, ‘You should be more humble and find a new career,'” the sentencing note filed by prosecutors said.
In the memo, the male flight attendant asked Johnson to “pull off his collar and alert federal authorities.”
“When the plane landed, the accused was greeted by law enforcement, whom he treated with anger, loud and abusive outbursts,” prosecutors said.
