A Staten Island man was convicted of sexual abuse after he molested a woman sleeping next to him on a 13-hour flight by rubbing hand lotion all over her body and private parts.
Nadeem Quraishi, 43, was found guilty Wednesday by a federal jury of rubbing down the 25-year-old New Jersey woman when they sat next to each other on an Emirates flight from Dubai to Kennedy Airport last October.
‘I’m a very strong believer in karma (so) I’ll see him at sentencing,’ the victim, identified only by her first name Stephanie, said after the verdict, according to the New York Daily News.
Quraishi, who is married, faces up to 10 to 16 months in prison for the sexual abuse and assault convictions.
But since he is not a U.S. citizen, he could also be deported to Pakistan, where he is a legal resident.
