65-year-old Bonn doctor accused of sexually molesting teenage boy

LANDSHUT/BONN. A 65-year-old doctor from Bonn has been charged with orally raping a teenage boyon a plane in Landshut. The man and the boy (then 14 years old) flew to the airfield in Landshut as members of the same flying club, and stayed on the plane together overnight to „avoid it being stolen“. When the boy felt uncomfortable and pretended to have to go to the loo, the man followed him and subsequently groped him. Later - back in the plane - the man forced the boy to orally pleasure him, according to the prosecution. The accused claims the boy made thestory up due to a personality disorder and denies the charges. The case continues.
