The infamous “Barefoot Bandit who gained international fame by stealing boats, cars and planes, and committing some crime while barefoot — and at least on one occasion naked — is expected to plead guilty on Friday in Seattle federal court, the Associated Press reported.
Colton Harris-Moore, 20, guilty plea will address questions whether he can participate in book or movie deals, with proceeds used to repay victims, his lawyer Emma Scanlan said, according to AP. She said restitution could total about $1.3 million.
After committing crimes across the U.S., he stole a plane and went to the Bahamas, where he was captured last July.
Federal prosecutors had filed court papers saying the government should get all proceeds made from books or movies.
“The property forfeited includes … any and all intellectual property or other proprietary rights belonging to the defendant, based upon or pertaining to any narration, description, publication, dissemination or disclosure of information relating to” government said.
Authorities claim he stole at least five planes and assaulted law enforcement officers.
