I am a Paraglider Pilot who is being prosecuted for my Legal Flights while following all rules and regulations under Federal Law as determined by the FAA. More

I just wanted to Bring every one up to speed on what is happening to me.   The sheriff dept. and county attorney have decided that my Legal flight in this county is no longer legal and are trying to shut it down.   I have received a citation for Disorderly Conduct and went to trial where the prosecutor stated that mere presence in the air is disorderly.   I was found guilty on a Bench Trial which I have appealed to county court.  I have now been issued 13 criminal trespass warnings and told that if I fly over any of the properties I will be arrested for Criminal Trespass.   I have been investigated by the FAA and cleared of any and all wrong doing what so ever. But that does not stop the county from continuing the prosecution of me.   I have flight tracks that show 300+ feet AGL at all time on the date in question and that makes no difference at all.  I have hired a Aviation Attorney out of Houston to fight for my rights as well as everyone's right to legal flight in this great state.  But this fight will not come cheap.  But I feel strongly that it is a fight that has to be fought.   I am setting up this to help defray the attorney fees if any one is interested in helping me fight this battle for our rights in this sport.  

Thank you, 

Craig Carter
