Sentence Also Includes Fine And Community Service
Appleton, WI resident
Phyliss Dintenfass received one year federal probation earlier this
week over a September 2004 incident when she asked a TSA screener
"how would you like it if I did that to you?" as she grabbed the
female screener's breasts, in response to a pat-down search.
Dintenfass, 63, was also ordered by US District Judge William
Griesbach to complete 100 hours of community service for the
incident, as well as pay a fine of $2,000, according to the
Janesville, WI Gazette. Dintenfass was convicted in July of one
count of assault on a federal employee.
Prosecutors argued Dintenfass reacted to the pat-down after she
was singled out by screener Anita Gostisha for more thorough
screening after her hairpins and pants buttons set off the
walk-through metal detector at Appleton's Outagamie County Regional
When -- as part of what prosecutors maintained was the standard
pat-down process -- Gostisha placed the back of her hands under
Dintenfass's breasts, the retired technical school teacher grabbed
Gostisha's breasts and pushed the screener into a glass
Judge Griesbach noted in his ruling that Dintenfass's actions
likely resulted from a split-second decision, and were not
indicative of a pattern of aggressive or threatening behavior. He
also noted prior to the incident, Dintenfoss led a law-abiding life
-- however, he added it is important to protect public
"We are not here to recognize her for a good life," he said.
"We're here because she committed a crime."
