U.S. Hijacker Returns from Cuba - 07 Nov 2013
Images of William Potts, former U.S. militant who hijacked a plane to Cuba almost 30 years ago. Potts flew home to the United States on Wednesday and was arrested by the FBI on air piracy charges, according to federal authorities. He is scheduled to appear before a U.S. judge in Miami on Thursday and faces 20 years to life in prison if convicted on the U.S. charges of hijacking a Piedmont Airlines flight to Havana in 1984, the prosecutor said.
Potts thought he would be
welcomed in Cuba but was instead arrested and convicted of air piracy. After serving 13 years in a Cuban prison, he stayed in Cuba, got married and fathered two young daughters who have lived in the United States since 2012.
