Mom Convicted After Dressing-Down TSA Agents Groping Her Daughter
Think of the children. Oh. Wait. They did.
A woman was found guilty Tuesday of disorderly conduct for berating security officers trying to pat down her teenage daughter and then refusing to submit to the procedure herself at a Tennessee airport.
Jurors deliberated four hours before convicting Andrea Abbott. She had faced up to 30 days in jail and a $50 fine for her conduct in the July 2011 confrontation at Nashville International Airport, but the judge placed her on probation for a year because she has no criminal record.
Judge Joe P. Binkley Jr., warned the 42-year-old "to be certain you don't get into any further problems with the law."
