A 20-year-old thief known as the “Barefoot Bandit” has some hard time ahead of him. Colton Harris Moore was sentenced to 7 years and 3 months in prison Friday, the Associated Press reported.
Moore pleaded guilty to state theft and burglary charges in a case that led authorities on an international manhunt and ended in a barrage of gunfire and a crashed plane in the Bahamas.
He had already pleaded guilty to federal charges of stealing an airplane earlier this year.
Why am I thinking that this is not the last that we will be hearing about the exploits of Colton Harris-Moore? In seven years we will be hearing that he posed as a pilot an steals a PAN-AM jet … oh wait, that has been already done.
