'Barefoot Bandit' pleads not guilty to charges

A possible plea deal would resolve both federal and state charges against the 19-year-old who faces several charges

SEATTLE — The attorney for the teenager accused of being the "Barefoot Bandit" says he's negotiating a possible plea deal.

Colton Harris-Moore pleaded not guilty in Seattle on Thursday to federal charges against him, including interstate transportation of stolen aircraft and being a fugitive in possession of a firearm.

Afterward, attorney John Henry Browne told reporters that discussions are in the early stages on a possible deal that would resolve both federal and state charges against the 19-year-old Harris-Moore.

The charges stem from a crime spree that began after Harris-Moore walked away from a halfway house near Seattle in 2008. Authorities allege he hopscotched his way around the Northwest, then the country in stolen planes, boats and cars, breaking into grocery stores, homes and ATMs along the way. He was arrested four months ago in the Bahamas.
