Tony Huey, a 52-year old California man, pleaded guilty to stalking this week after numerous instances of flying his private airplane over the home of his ex-girlfriend. The Concord man received a 10-year restraining order after a being found guilty on three counts during the second day of his trial.
He was also sentenced to three years probation and a year of anger management counseling. Following the criminal investigation and man’s arrest at an area airport, Huey served nearly a year’s worth of time in jail after witnesses claimed that his small plane–a 1957 Beech–made eight low-level flights over the ex-girlfriends home, alarming neighbors.
According to witness statements, the neighborhood was also plastered with fliers using racial slurs to describe the former girlfriend. Although the prosecution claimed that they didn’t get to finish presenting their case after the guilty plea, they’re happy with the outcome. Deputy District Attorney Jason Peck said Thursday. “His actions instilled fear and harassed not only the victim, but that entire neighborhood.”
