Investigators said the 14-year-old girl was led to the first-class restroom by Thompson, who claimed he had to wash his hands first but placed his cell phone under the toilet seat with the camera set to record.

The young lady explained she didn’t even see the phone until she got up from her seat, taking a photo to show her mother once she did notice the device.

When the girl’s father learned of the predatory airline employee, he confronted the man and a scuffle broke out according to the victim’s attorney.

Thompson was charged with “one count of attempted sexual exploitation of children and one count of possession of images of child sexual abuse depicting a prepubescent minor.”

The suspected pedophile faces decades in jail time if convicted on both counts.
