Lake Villa resident Robert Kadera pleaded guilty Wednesday to criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. Lake County Associate 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.
