‘This is my greatest mistake’: Winemaker and hairdresser get fined for having oral sex in front of other passengers in a plane (PICTURED)

A former Oregon vintner has been fined $250 for partaking in oral sex in front of other passengers on a commercial flight to Las Vegas in June, just days after he hosted TV chef Gordon Ramsey at his winery.

Chris Martin and the object of his affections, Medford hairdresser Jessica Stroble, each pleaded guilty in absentia in the U.S. District Court in Las Vegas to a federal misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct on Wednesday.

In a statement, Martin, 44, who was fired in August by his father whom he previously ran Troon Vineyards with, claimed the lewd act, which made international headlines, was the greatest mistake of his life.

‘I have made many mistakes in my life, none greater than this one,’ he told the Mail Tribune in a written statement. ‘I have lost my job, my reputation and damaged the legacy I had worked 10 years to nurture and grow. I will learn from this and move on to the next chapter in my life.’

The pair were initially charged with a federal misdemeanor crime of lewd, indecent and obscene acts on an airplane.

That charge carried a maximum sentence of up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine.

Martin complained that he had been persecuted by the press, claiming the media had done ‘everything to paint me in nothing but the worst possible light.’

He said in the statement that he believes he would have been exonerated if his case had gone to trial but he pleaded guilty to move on with his life.

He also apologized for hurting his friends, family, Troon staff and other passengers.

‘My actions were clearly inappropriate and inconsiderate,’ Martin wrote. ‘Seeing and hearing the level of venom directed at these people has been hardest for me and I am truly sorry for that.’

On the winery’s Facebook page, Martin can be seen chatting and posing with Ramsey as the pair enjoy a meal together and taste the vineyard’s produce.

It was reported in August that Martin had been forced to take a leave of absence by his father after the embarrassing sky-high performance.

Troon Vineyards announced on its Facebook page that Martin had been replaced pending the court case against him.

Martin and Stroble, 33, were arrested on June 21 after getting off an Allegiant Airlines flight from Medford, Oregon to Las Vegas, where they were attending a conference.

They engaged in a number of sex acts several different times on the plane while young families were on board.
