A startling case of sexual abuse has come to light in the US where a 53-year old pilot put the plane on auto pilot to have sex with a 15-year-old. The millionaire who also is a flying instructor has taken advantage of this girl, who is his student before this also.

Stephen Bradley Mell, of Bedminster, New Jersey, pleaded guilty to federal charges of taking up interstate travel in order to have illicit sexual relations with a minor. He has allegedly also taken nude pictures of the girl and asked to take an emergency birth control pill, the complainant said. 

The father of three who formerly ran a brokerage firm will be sentenced on May 18, Tuesday.
