The young man known as the “Barefoot Bandit” says he’s looking forward to leaving prison and having a “beautiful life.”

As a teenager, Colton Harris-Moore became known worldwide after running from the law in stolen cars, boats and airplanes for two years. Now the 22-year-old is serving a seven-year prison sentence after a plea deal with federal and local authorities.

On Thursday, one of his attorneys released a brief statement Harris-Moore meant to read in court this week when he pleaded guilty to another charge in Skagit County.

Harris-Moore says, “The past holds experiences and lessons I’ll learn from for the rest of my life, but my future is precisely what I make it.”

He adds: “I am working with amazing people, and I will have a beautiful life.”
