Ex-American Airlines Flight Attendant Not Guilty Due To Insanity Plea

Last year, Joanne Snow, a former American Airlines flight attendant, faced 2 felony charges due to her actions on an American Airlines flight from Charlotte, NC to Frankfurt, Germany in November 2015. The affidavit said that she had attacked 2 US marshals and slapped another flight attendant, before trying to flee passport control.

Today, Snow was found not guilty by reason of insanity. In court, a psychiatric report indicated that a hormone she had been given by an anti-aging clinic had caused a temporary mental disease that made her unable to “appreciate the wrongness of her actions.”

U.S. Magistrate Judge David Cayer agreed and accepted her not guilty plea.

What are your thoughts on the outcome?
