HOUSTON (AP) —  A 33-year-old lawyer who exposed himself multiple times aboard a Los Angeles-to-Houston airline flight has pleaded guilty to two counts of making lewd acts.

Leonard Julius Sawyer of Houston entered the plea Thursday before a federal magistrate in Houston. A Justice Department statement says Sawyer was in the middle seat of a Continental Airlines flight in February of last year when he exposed himself to the woman in the window seat next to him.

The woman changed her seat, but Sawyer later exposed himself to a flight attendant. According to the statement, when the flight attendant told him his behavior was inappropriate, Sawyer answered, “Can’t a guy have his fly undone?”

Sawyer could get up to six months imprisonment and $10,000 in fines when sentenced Aug. 30.
