SEATTLE (AP) - The youthful thief who led a two-year crime spree in stolen boats, cars and planes is out of solitary confinement.
The Washington Department of Corrections confirmed Thursday that Colton Harris-Moore was transferred from Walla Walla State Penitentiary to Stafford Creek Corrections Center in Aberdeen.
A spokesman says the 21-year-old known as the "Barefoot Bandit" had been in intensive management with death row inmates as soon he began his sentence because he was a high-profile prisoner. He was placed Wednesday with the general population at Stafford Creek.
His lawyer, John Henry Browne, says Harris-Moore is enrolling in a GED program and will have better access to counseling at Stafford Creek as he serves his seven-year sentence.
He was arrested in the Bahamas in 2010 after crash-landing a stolen plane.
