WAUKEGAN, Ill. — A pilot who landed his four-seat airplane on an Illinois golf course so his 14-year-old son wouldn’t be late for a tennis lesson has been sentenced to 18 months of court supervision.
Robert Kadera pleaded guilty Wednesday to criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.
Judge Charles Johnson also ordered the 66-year-old to pay a $500 fine and perform 60 hours of community service.
No one was injured in March 2008 when Kadera landed on a golf course in Lincolnshire without permission. Police stopped Kadera and his son as they were walking to a nearby tennis club.
Johnson told Kadera to stay away from the golf course. Kadera is still subject to any action by the Federal Aviation Administration.
