CNN: “Former Southwest Airlines pilot Michael Haak was sentenced to one year of probation after pleading guilty to committing a lewd, indecent, or obscene act during a flight he was piloting last summer.”

CNN: “Federal prosecutors agreed that Haak will not need to register as a sex offender for his misdemeanor offense, a court memorandum filed on Tuesday reads.”

CNN: “A spokesperson for Southwest Airlines said in a statement to CNN that “Southwest does not tolerate behavior of this nature and will take prompt action if such conduct is substantiated.” “In this particular situation, Southwest only learned of the alleged behavior after Mr. Haak voluntarily separated from Southwest Airlines,” the statement read. “Nonetheless, Southwest did investigate the matter and as a result, ceased paying Mr. Haak any benefits he was entitled to receive as a result of his separation from The Company.”
