Former rural letter carrier Douglas Hughes, 62, of Ruskin, Fla., was sentenced in April 2016 to 120 days in jail on a federal charge stemming from the April 15, 2015, incident in which he flew a gyrocopter into Washington, D.C., and landed on the West Front lawn of the Capitol. Hughes pled guilty on Nov. 20, 2015, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, to a felony charge of operating as an airman without an airman’s certificate.
Hughes 4 month sentence begins on June 14, 2016 and ends October 14, 2016 at the Miami, Florida Federal Detention Center:
Douglas Hughes 62746-007
FEDERAL DETENTION CENTER
P.O. BOX 019120

Although Hughes will be released in time for the upcoming presidential election, Florida state law ban felons from voting even after being released from prison, parole, and probation, and having paid all their fines..
But on the bright side Hughes is eligible for his USPS retirement.
