Man Who Steals And Crashes Plane To Pay Just $40


A homeless man in Fredrick, Maryland, decided that one day he was going to steal a single-engine airplane at a Maryland airport.

When he did steal the plane, he then failed to execute flight and crashed the plane, as well as causing $12,000 in damage.

However, he will only pay a compensation of $40.

When Frederick County circuit judge G. Edward Dwyer Jr. heard of this incident, he said the same thing most of us are thinking.

“Only $40”

Prosecutors explained, that the insurance has paid for all of the damages from the crash, and all is left is a $40 deductible. The fifty-one year old homeless man Calvin Cox, told the court room that he stole the plane because he was homeless and cold.

He is currently half way through serving his 9 month prison sentence for the theft that took place in December.

At sentencing in April, Dwyer authorized work release for Cox so he could earn money to pay restitution to the plane’s owner, Mid Atlantic Soaring Associates Corp.

Hey I know what you are thinking, $40 may not be a lot to you but do you know how many cans you have to sell to get $40?
