MOUNT VERNON, Wash. - Though he already pleaded guilty, prosecutors are refusing to drop a charge against Colton Harris-Moore.
The ‘Barefoot Bandit’ was in a Skagit County courtroom Thursday morning where prosecutors said they still plan to try him for breaking into an Anacortes hangar and stealing a plane during his infamous crime spree.
But the plane theft is one of many charges he pleaded guilty to in exchange for a 7-year prison term.
Harris-Moore’s attorney is asking the case be dropped.
A judge will hear that motion next week.
