JetBlue Pilot Indicted by Lubbock Grand Jury
The pilot charged with disrupting a JetBlue flight from New York to Las Vegas has been indicted in Lubbock.
Clayton F. Osbon was indicted on one count of interference of a flight crew by a grand jury Thursday. It’s the same charge he was detained under on March 27, the day of the incident. Osbon must undergo a court-ordered psychiatric exam to determine whether he was legally sane at the time of the incident.
If he is deemed psychiatrically competent, he will stand trial. The conviction of interfering with a flight crew carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
