A former flight attendant accused of raping a 15-year-old boy while working at a school was released on bail Wednesday after spending a week in prison.
British media reported that the judicial authorities understood that the risk that Melissa Nosti, 33, would repeat crimes of this type was low. Part of the decision responded to the victim’s own testimony, according to the Metro UK report.
The facts for which Nosti, a resident of North Ryde, a Sydney suburb, was tried, were reported in 2010.
After the incident at school, where he worked as an assistance officer, Nosti worked for the airline Tiger Air.
“She has had an employment history after that. She worked in the aviation industry ”, alleged her lawyer.
Nosti pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 18 months in prison and six months on supervised release. However, she was released on bail.
The conditions imposed by the court in order not to remain in prison include having a cell phone and providing the police with access codes when required. In addition, he was prohibited from working in companies in which he had contact with minors under 16 years of age. He also cannot contact the victim or Tiger Air personnel.
The defendant must appear in Sydney District Court for an appeal hearing on a date that has not been determined.
