JetBlue Flight Attendant Accepts Plea Deal

• NY Times

The former JetBlue flight attendant who famously slid down an emergency chute after broadcasting his frustrations over the public address system managed to sidestep jail time on Tuesday, agreeing to a plea deal that calls for him to attend counseling sessions regularly for at least a year.

The former flight attendant, Steven Slater, appeared in Queens Mental Health Court, a pilot program for certain criminal defendants with mental health issues. Judge Marcia P. Hirsch accepted his guilty plea to two charges of attempted criminal mischief, one a felony, one a misdemeanor.
