Banking executive won’t face charges in SFO groping case
August 16, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

A banking executive accused of groping two women while pretending to be a security screener at San Francisco International Airport will not be charged with any crime.
Eric Slighton, 53, of San Francisco and Hong Kong, was due in court Monday for his first appearance since his arrest. On Friday, however, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said his office will not be prosecuting him.
“We can’t find the women and his drunk in public doesn’t really qualify him as a danger to himself or others,” Wagstaffe said.
Slighton was arrested around 12:30 p.m. July 15 at the security checkpoint of the SFO international terminal after officers responded to a report of a seemingly intoxicated man causing a disturbance. Authorities said Slighton, dressed in garb similar to official screeners, brought at least two women into a private screening room before he was discovered. The alleged victims were not present.
Slighton was arrested and posted $10,000 bail that night.
In past weeks, authorities tried identifying and locating the women but to no avail.
Slighton worked for Barclays Capitol and Deutsche Bank in Hong Kong before moving banking and investment firm Aktis Hanxi Group.

Agree, Internet access should be governed like a utility
Don't agree, it will limit the free market
Worry about taxes

It's too complicated
