(The AEGIS Alliance) – SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA – A former Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent was sentenced to 60 days in county jail, 2 years of felony probation, and 52 classes “to address sexual compulsion,” according to California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s Office in a press release on Friday, January 22.
Johnathon Lomeli was arrested in June of 2019 and charged with false imprisonment after being accused of “unlawfully detaining a woman and using fraud or deceit to get her to expose herself to him,” the AG’s Office stated.
Lomeli pleaded no contest to false imprisonment on Friday, KTLA reported. He is also going to be required to pay restitution to the female victim and is forbidden from working as a security guard again.
According to the Associated Press and KTLA, Lomeli “tricked a traveler into showing her breasts as she went through security at Los Angeles International Airport.” Lomeli pleaded no contest on Friday to false imprisonment. Lomeli faced charges of using fraud or deceit to falsely imprison the woman in June of 2019.
The woman informed investigators that Lomeli instructed her that he needed to look inside her bra to make sure she wasn’t hiding something, had her hold her pants away from her waist for a check after which said he would take her to a non-public room for additional security screening, prosecutors stated.
But after they had been alone on an elevator, Lomeli instructed the lady he could carry out the screening there and ordered her to raise her shirt and show her breasts, then looked down her pants, she mentioned. Lomeli then instructed the lady that she was free to go and added that she had nice looking breasts, authorities mentioned.
