A Brooklyn man will not serve jail time, even though a jury convicted him of sexually assaulting a sleeping woman during a transatlantic flight several years ago.

On February 24, 2018, Daniel Katz of Brooklyn was on a flight from Abu Dhabi to John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City. He was sitting in an aisle seat, while an unnamed woman, who was then 25 years old, sat in a nearby window seat. During the flight, the woman had fallen asleep, and while she was unconscious, Katz stuck his hand down her pants and sexually assaulted her. In June 2021, a federal jury convicted Katz of both abusive sexual contact and assault for the incident.
