COUPEVILLE, Wash. (AP) _ Colton Harris-Moore, the "Barefoot Bandit," has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison after pleading guilty to dozens of state charges. The 20-year-old man gained international notoriety while evading police across the country in stolen planes, boats and cars during a two-year crime spree. Friday's proceedings consolidated cases against Harris-Moore in three Washington counties. He has already pleaded guilty to federal charges in Seattle and will be sentenced for those crimes early next year. He will serve his state and federal sentences at the same time.
