Barefoot Bandit Being Brought Back (To Washington)

A federal judge in Miami, Florida, has ordered that the Barefoot Bandit, Colton Harris-Moore, be transferred to Washington state to face charges.

From CNN:

A public defender represented Harris on Friday in lieu of his Washington state attorney, who will be there when a Washington court reads charges against Harris, then conducts a detention hearing.

Harris-Moore, who was sought in a string of home and airport break-ins in various U.S. locations along with thefts of vehicles, was taken into custody on Harbour Island in the Bahamas early Sunday.

In the Bahamas, Harris-Moore pleaded guilty to a charge of illegally landing a plane, paid a $300 fine and was ordered deported, his lawyer said.

He was then flown to Miami on Tuesday, the FBI said.

Typically in extradition cases, the accused makes a first appearance in the federal court closest to where he was arrested, said Emily Langlie, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western District of Washington.
