Barefoot Bandit Sentenced in Court
It's the day of reckoning for the "Barefoot Bandit."
Dressed in an organge prison jumpsuit, Colton Harris-Moore appeared contrite as he plead guilty to his nearly two-year crime spree.
The list of charges went on and on. It took so long to read the charges, even Harris-Moore grew impatient and said to his attorney, "How long do you think this is going to take?"
When he was on the loose, the teenage renegade became a national sensation as he taunted autorities across eight states by leaving behind his signature, hand-drawn "Barefoot Bandit" footprints.
He stole a private plane, even though he had never taken a flying lesson in his life, and flew to the Bahamas and crash landed in a swamp. Surveillance footage showed him just before his arrest on a dock in the Bahamas, running for his life, barefoot of course.
Harris-Moore was captured last year and brought back to Washington state where his crime spree began.
The courtroom was packed with Harris-Moore's victims—people whose homes and businesses he had broken into. Harris-Moore listened to their dramatic testimony with his head lowered in shame. A far cry from the cocky teenager who wreaked havoc across the nation.
