I would assume so given the federal complaint was filed against him and the grand jury agreed. Most of these plead out so if he was found guilty, he is for sure done. It does not say, but it sounds like he's been in federal custody since February?

Does he have a history of this type of behavior and actions?
I think that's irrelevant to this degree of offense. If you're talking about removing someone of their driving privileges for speeding or restitution for a crime, you take into account their personal story and history in relation to the offense. However, for sexual assault and the endangerment of a airliner, take it at face value.

There is a difference between a "hard" sexual assault and groping. Once. We are wasting our time and resources on weak, petty crimes when it should be hard time for serious crimes that truly harm people, scar lives, and impact society.
I think publicly groping multiple individuals qualifies for sexual assault and any related lists that may qualify due to a guilty verdict. I agree, public intoxication or urinating in public offenders should not be qualifiers for the sexual offenders list (as has been the case many times) as there is a difference there. If a drunk person drops their pants and relieves themselves on a public road, they are doing so as a direct result of their partying and are often going home or finding their way after a bar closes. When flying on an airplane, there is a widespread understanding that is clear to new and old flyers that professionalism is to be maintained both at the airport and in the aircraft.
