Prosecutors said Robinson and the victim were on a flight from New Jersey to Boston on April 8 when the defendant exposed himself, inappropriately touched himself and put his hand on the thigh of the 21-year-old woman seated next to him.

The woman alerted another passenger and a flight attendant, and the man was later arrested.
