'Barefoot Bandit' returns to Island County Dec. 16

The date for the so-called Barefoot Bandit to appear in Island County Superior Court has finally been set.

Colton Harris-Moore is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, Dec. 16 to enter guilty pleas to crimes he allegedly committed in the state. Harris-Moore, a 20-year-old Camano Island resident, has already pleaded guilty to seven federal criminal charges in U.S. District Court in Seattle.

"The hearing is coordinated with the hearings in Island County as a matter of efficiency and security," said San Juan County prosecutor Randy Gaylord. "The first proceeding will be the arraignment on the 17 charges filed in San Juan County. There has been extensive discussion with the attorneys for Mr. Harris-Moore and we will we have the paperwork ready to proceed to sentencing if there is a guilty plea."
