Sentencing for Air Traveler in Groping Case
Prosecutors want the judge Wednesday to imprison 45-year-old Srinivasa Erramilli (sri-nih-VAH'-suh air-ah-MIL'-ee) for as much as a year and nine months.
Defense lawyers want probation for the Aurora-based software consultant. They argue the married father of two daughters has already suffered public humiliation as a consequence of media coverage.
The victim and her husband were returning to Chicago from a 34th wedding-anniversary trip when the 2011 incident occurred.
At trial, jurors heard testimony Erramilli was convicted in 2002 and given probation after grabbing a woman's breast on a Detroit-bound flight. In 2000, he received two years' probation for a similar incident.
