'Barefoot Bandit' To Be Sentenced In Federal Court
January 27, 2012, 9:30 AM
SEATTLE, WA -
"Barefoot Bandit" Colton Harris-Moore is scheduled to be sentenced Friday in a Seattle federal courtroom for his two-year international crime spree of break-ins and boat and plane thefts.
The 20-year-old pleaded guilty last month to his state crimes and was sentenced to seven years.
Federal prosecutors have asked for six-and-a-half years to be served while he serves the state time. Harris-Moore's attorneys want less than six years.
Authorities say he flew a plane stolen in Washington to the San Juan Islands; stole a pistol in British Columbia and took a plane from Idaho to Washington; stole a boat in southwestern Washington to go to Oregon; and took a plane in Indiana and flew to the Bahamas, where was arrested in 2010.
He committed several of the crimes without wearing shoes.
