MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- A couple who engaged in oral sex on a flight from Medford, Ore., to Las Vegas pleaded guilty Wednesday to disorderly conduct and each was fined $250.

The Mail Tribune reports Christopher Martin of Las Vegas and Jessica Stroble of Medford were not required to attend the hearing in federal court in Las Vegas and the pleas from their lawyers were accepted by Magistrate Judge George Foley.

The pair were initially charged with lewd, indecent and obscene acts on an airplane for their behavior on the June 21 Allegiant Air flight.

An FBI affidavit says passengers saw Martin exposing himself and engaging in acts with Stroble despite warnings from flight attendants. In a statement to the Medford paper, Martin apologized to those he hurt and offended.

At the time of the incident, Martin had been listed as a director for Troon Vineyards. He is no longer listed on the firm's website as part of the management team.
