MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) — “Barefoot Bandit” Colton Harris-Moore has pleaded guilty in Mount Vernon to a burglary charge for breaking into the Anacortes Airport where he stole a plane and flew it to Orcas Island.

As part of a plea deal with Skagit County Prosecutor Rich Weyrich, the 22-year-old was sentenced Wednesday to three months he’s already spent in jail.

Harris-Moore already pleaded guilty to a theft charge in connection with the 2010 incident as part of a bigger plea deal a year ago that resulted in a seven-year prison sentence. That wrapped up state and federal charges for his two-year run from the law in stolen cars, boats and airplanes that ended in the Bahamas.

The latest sentence does not add to his prison time.
