Trial In NJ Resumes In Airline Groping Accusation

American Airlines Highlights Their Updated Logo On Newly Painted Boeing 737-800's

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Testimony has resumed in the federal trial of a northern New Jersey man accused of groping a woman on a flight from Phoenix to Newark.

The woman is back on the witness stand to face cross-examination Monday.

Last week, she testified that she told authorities she was on a United Airlines flight last summer when she awoke to find Bawer Aksal had slipped his hands into her blouse and shorts. The woman testified the encounter left her feeling “completely humiliated” and “contaminated.”

Aksal, a Turkish-born U.S. citizen, has pleaded not guilty to a sexual abuse charge. He has denied through his attorney that he harmed the woman, whom he says he did not know.
