The 20-year-old Camano Island man dubbed the "Barefoot Bandit" has pleaded guilty to federal charges in court Friday.
He will be sentenced on October 28 at 9 a.m. at the U.S. District Court in Seattle.
Harris-Moore pleaded guilty to bank burglary, two counts of interstate transportation of a stolen aircraft, interstate and foreign transportation of a stolen firearm, being a fugitive in possession of a firearm, piloting an aircraft without a valid airman's certificate and interstate transportation of a stolen vessel.
Harris-Moore's spree of sometimes-shoeless crimes spanned nine states, British Columbia and the Bahamas. His theft of boats and planes enabled him to elude authorities in multiple states for two years.
Harris-Moore, who grew up in the Puget Sound community of Camano Island, will face more charges for the multiple burglaries he is suspected of committing since escaping from a juvenile detention center in April 2008. He will appear in an Island County court sometime in July.
San Juan County prosecutor Randall Gaylord said that it is likely the state charges against Harris-Moore will be combined. Harris-Moore faces 32 charges of burglarly in San Juan county alone.
Last week, Colton Harris-Moore had pleaded not guilty but his attorney, John Henry Browne, had acknowledged at that time that a plea agreement was in the works.
Browne announced Thursday that Harris-Moore would enter a guilty plea in U.S. District Court at 11 a.m. Friday to unspecified charges as part of an overall plea agreement resolving the federal and state cases against him.
This was a sticking point in the plea negotiations, Browne said. The final agreement was complicated in part by the question of whether his client, a high school dropout and self-taught pilot, should be permitted to sell and profit from the rights to his life story.
A federal indictment stipulates that if convicted, Harris-Moore must forfeit the proceeds from "any and all intellectual property or other proprietary rights" to pay about $1.5 million in restitution to his victims, Browne said.
"The many years of Mr. Harris-Moore avoiding responsibility for his criminal conduct have come to an end," said U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan. "We have ensured he will not profit from his crimes, and that his victims will be compensated to the greatest extent possible. While we cannot stop him from telling his story, we can mkae sure he never sees a dime for his crimes."
While Browne has maintained that his client is not interested in profiting from his exploits, entertainment lawyer Lance Rosen, who claims to represent "all media interests" for Harris-Moore, earlier declined to discuss the status of the case.
