'Barefoot Bandit' pleads guilty to seven federal charges

Colton Harris-Moore, whom authorities have dubbed the Barefoot Bandit, pleaded guilty Friday to several federal charges stemming from actions that led to his dramatic July 2010 capture in the Bahamas.

Harris-Moore gained notoriety and earned his nickname for allegedly leading police on a two-year manhunt while eluding capture in stolen boats, cars and planes, often while barefoot.

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.

    I didn't post anything about Jazzy last night, I wasn't even on!

    And as far as the conversation between 'raven' and 'banasy', well, our trolls are getting better at observation, but they can never duplicate our style.
    They thrive on trying to stir up discord, however.
