An American millionaire is facing five years in jail after pleading guilty to engaging in sex acts with a 15-year-old girl inside his private plane.
53-year-old Stephen Bradley Mell of Bedminster, New Jersey, pleaded guilty to federal charges of involving in interstate travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct and receiving child pornography in December 2018 and is now due for sentencing next week Tuesday.
The father-of-three who had a brokerage firm, was accused of committing sex acts with a 15-year-old girl whose mother had approached him so that he could give her flying lessons, Daily Mail reported.
It was also heard that the millionaire had to put his private plane in autopilot for the purpose.
Mell, who started his own charity, Air LifeLine, which flew children with medical needs anywhere in the US for treatment is now facing sentencing in July on a state charge related to sexual activity with the teen.
