A male flight attendant from Ryan Air has been sentenced to a year in jail after he was caught performing oral sex on a sleeping 22-year-old straight man. First class passengers, don't be alarmed; it wasn't during the flight.
Gay Star News reports that the 23-year-old air steward Iain Fisher and his two female colleagues were drinking at a bar when they met the man, and invited him to a house party. The four reportedly drank all night, then went to bed together, fully clothed, at 4:30 a.m.
Later in the evening, the women left the room to sleep on couches in the lounge, and Fisher left the bed. He then returned at about 6:30 a.m., when his reportedly heterosexual victim awoke to discover Fisher performing oral sex on him.
The victim told Ayr Sheriff Court that Fisher left the room laughing, as the man when home in tears, and told his father what happened.
The Irish Mirror reports that the victim only realized after it was over that it was Fisher blowing him rather than one of the female stewardesses.
Sheriff Scott Pattison said, "Only a custodial sentence is in the public interest."
"I asked him why he did it, and he said he thought it might be consensual, but he has to accept the victim was asleep," Fisher's lawyer Bob Campbell said. "This is a source of considerable shame to him," added Campbell, saying his client had a "stainless character" before this incident.
"The best explanation I can give is he got carried away," said Campbell.
The Daily Records notes that Fisher's Ryanair colleagues Nicola Martin and Niamh Finnegan had "discussed how to get the victim to leave" and that "Nicole left, saying she felt uneasy, and she was followed by Niam and Iain Fisher, leaving the victim in bed."
Fisher, "will, of course, lose his job," and will be put on the sex offenders' register.
