The New Jersey millionaire could have reached the sinner for the next five years after having sexual acts with a minor – including once on his private plane while in autopilot, according to a federal lawsuit.
Steven Bradley Mel, from Somerset County, was allegedly introduced to a 15-year-old girl by her mother, who wanted the boy to teach flying lessons, according to Bridge Water Courier.
Mal, a 53-year-old father of three, began talking to the girl in 2017 – replacing text messages and snapshots of SnapChat – before finally arriving at a $ 3.8 million meeting in Badminster.
Mell allegedly "committed oral sexual acts" on the girl on June 20 and then again a few weeks after sending her a message saying, "Miss you so."
Both of them would often discuss having sex and using contraception, with MELL allegedly buying an emergency-prevention pill on July 6, the complaint says.
"If you're nervous it will hurt more," Lil said in the text. "When you run it when it feels fine."
The two would meet weeks later – on July 20 – on their private flight outside the Somerset airport, the complaint says. They allegedly flew to Burnstable, Mass., Massachusetts, on Cape Cod "for the purpose of illegal behavior, especially sex."
It was on the flight back that Mell – an active member of the community who volunteered to work for a charity number, including the New Jersey Conservation Foundation – supposedly putting the plane into autopilot.
He and the teen called during the summer of 2017 and by November, when the last correspondence was documented, the complaint says.

"Send me a nice picture, honey," Mel said. His wife will eventually divorce him after the connection is discovered.
Mell – who pleaded guilty last year to engage in travel between countries engaging in prohibited sexual behavior with minor pornography as well as child – is expected to appear in federal court Tuesday for sentencing.
