, the 20-year-old, 6-foot-5 criminal whose hijinks in multiple countries led to internet fame and the "Barefoot Bandit" name, today pleaded guilty to seven criminal charges.
Moore, who was captured in the Bahamas last July after crash-landing a plane he allegedly stole in Indiana, pleaded guilty under an agreement with prosecutors that prevents him from profiting from his crimes.
According to the plea agreement, Harris-Moore could be sentenced up to 78 months in prison and ordered to pay restitution to the tune of $1.4 million. His sentencing will be in October. According to Jenny Durkan, a U.S. Attorney, “Mr. Harris-Moore’s flight from justice has ended. He will spend a significant amount of time in prison and he will not make a dime from his crimes.
Dressed in a khaki prison uniform at the hearing Friday, Harris-Moore pleaded guilty to seven counts, including stealing an airplane, piloting an airplane without a license, burglarizing a bank and possessing a firearm as a fugitive. He faces additional charges in Washington state.
Harris-Moore still faces a trial in state court over more than 40 charges filed sparely by four Washington counties in connection with what prosecutors said was a two-year crime spree. Authorities say he could receive between 5 1/4 and 6 1/2 years in prison when he's sentenced in October.
