(SALT LAKE CITY) -- A California man accused of groping and sexually propositioning a teenage girl onboard a flight from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City was in court Friday and pleaded guilty.
During a court hearing, 66-year-old Hans Loudermilk admitted to touching the 15-year-old girl on the chin and rubbing her leg while on board a Delta Airlines flight.
Prosecutors say he told the girl sitting next to him that he could teach her things and that she was old enough to marry him in Utah.
Loudermilk is pleading guilty to misdemeanor assault. In return, prosecutors are dropping two counts of sexual abuse on an aircraft.
The defense attorney claims that Loudermilk was in the beginning stages of bipolar disorder at the time of the incident.
