The American teenager who authorities call the "Barefoot Bandit" is now in the U.S. to face charges after being deported from the Bahamas.
An initial court appearance for Colton Harris-Moore is scheduled for today in Miami. It's likely he'll eventually be taken to Seattle, where he was indicted.
Law enforcement officials escorted Harris-Moore on a commercial flight to Miami yesterday to face prosecution for a two-year string of break-ins and plane thefts across the United States. The FBI took him off the plane and put him into a waiting car.
The 19-year-old convict was deported to the U.S. just hours after he pleaded guilty to a minor offense in the Bahamas, where he was arrested.
