Trial In Barefoot Bandit Case Put Off To July 11
December 7, 2010, 2:44 PM
The trial for Colton Harris-Moore in the Barefoot Bandit case has been put off to July 11 in federal court in Seattle.
The 19-year-old agreed Tuesday to waive his speedy trial right. Federal prosecutors and a defense lawyer agreed more time is needed for a plea arrangement or to prepare for trial. Attorney John Henry Browne said they are working with prosecutors in as many as 20 counties to reach a settlement.
Harris-Moore is accused of a nine-state crime spree that includes more than a dozen burglaries, mostly in Western Washington, and stealing planes and a boat.
July 11 will be exactly one year since his arrest in the Bahamas.
