Quick Guilty Plea In 'Barefoot' Case In Bahamas

NASSAU, Bahamas

The teenage thief dubbed the "Barefoot Bandit" by police has pleaded guilty to a minor offense in the Bahamas and is expected to be deported soon to the United States.

Colton Harris-Moore pleaded guilty to illegal landing in his first court appearance in Nassau on Tuesday. The charge carries a $300 fine or three months in jail, followed by deportation. 

The 19-year-old American spent two years fleeing police before his capture Sunday in the Bahamas. He faces burglary and theft charges in several U.S. states.
