A former Transportation Security Administration agent who was accused of tricking a traveler into showing her breasts as she went through security at Los Angeles International Airport pleaded no contest Friday to false imprisonment, authorities said.

Lomeli was arrested in February 2020 with using fraud or deceit to falsely imprison the woman after the crime was committed months earlier.

According to a criminal complaint, Lomeli had stopped a female passenger at the LAX, claiming that he needed to look into her bra during a security screening.

Following Lomeli's conviction, Attorney General Becerra issued a follow-up statement decrying his actions.

Lomeli told the woman he could conduct the screening in a private room, but when they got on an elevator together he told her he could perform the check there, according to the station. "And no one is entitled to use a position of power to violate those rights", said Becerra.

The woman told investigators that Lomeli told her he had to look inside her bra to ensure she wasn't hiding anything, had her hold her trousers away from her waist for a check, and then said he would take her to a private room for further security screening, prosecutors said. "Why can't some men absorb that simple truth?" His sentence also includes 52 court-mandated classes addressing sexual compulsion and two years of probation. "Today, Johnathon Lomeli learned this the hard way". He also allegedly looked into her trousers once more before allowing her to leave, but not before complimenting her breasts.

NBC reported Lomeli then told the woman she was free to go and that she had "nice breasts".
