I don’t know if you’re familiar with this case that originally happened back in February but I just thought I would give an update.
"Joe Rickey Hundley, who lived in Idaho at the time, was on a Delta flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta on Feb. 8 2013 and was seated in a window seat next to Jessica Bennett, who was sitting in the aisle seat and had her 19-month-old son on her lap, according to court filings. At the beginning of the flight, Hundley pressed the call button and asked a flight attendant about the airline’s policy regarding “lap children,” prosecutors said in a filing. The way he asked the question made it clear he was unhappy about the child’s presence, prosecutors wrote. As the plane descended into Atlanta, the child started crying. Hundley leaned over to Bennett and “told her to shut that NIGGER baby up,” according to a sworn statement from an FBI agent who investigated the incident. Bennett asked Hundley what he had said, and he leaned in with his face up next to hers and said it again, prosecutors said in a filing. Hundley then SLAPPED the child in the face, leaving a scratch below his right eye," (ABCNews) "Hundley entered the guilty plea before Magistrate Judge Alan Baverman after reaching a plea agreement with federal prosecutors. His trial had been set to start Thursday morning. Carries a possible prison sentence of up to a year and a fine of up to $100,000. Prosecutors have recommended a sentence of six months in prison, but Hundley reserved his right to argue for a lower sentence. Prosecutors are not recommending any specific fine. Hundley has agreed to pay any restitution ordered by the court." (AbcNews)
