- U.S. Court, Seattle
- In July 2010, Colton Harris-Moore, then 19, pleaded guilty to interstate transportation of a stolen plane, boat and gun; being a fugitive in possession of a firearm; and flying a plane without a pilot's license.
Harris-Moore was also charged with the theft or destruction of a boat and two cars, and break-ins at at least 100 private residences. His legend grew as he left behind bare footprints and wrote "C' ya!" at dozens of his crime scenes.
In December 2011, Harris-Moore pleaded guilty to many of his crimes and was sentenced to seven years in prison. In September this year, Harris-Moore was paroled and is reportedly living in Seattle.
Now, KING-TV in Seattle reports the former Barefoot Bandit wants to go flying again. The Flight Academy in Seattle told KING that Harris-Moore has contacted them to get proper flying lessons.

"I have decided to go against my instinct to not be public, and instead open this project and my goal to the world," wrote Harris-Moore on his GoFundMe page. "My goal is, of course, to fly!"
As for restitution to his victims, KING-TV reports Harris-Moore has forwarded the money he received from Sony Pictures when he sold the rights to his story to the film company.
