MOUNT VERNON, Wash. —

A superior court judge in Washington has ordered a new court date for charges the Skagit County prosecutor is pursuing against "Barefoot Bandit" Colton Harris-Moore.

Harris-Moore's attorney John Henry Browne says the next hearing on April 10 will be to consider dismissing the new charges, which are for a crime Harris-Moore already pleaded guilty to in a 2011 plea deal with three counties.

The youthful thief who gained international notoriety has acknowledged dozens of crimes and was sentenced to seven years in prison.

In February, Skagit County Prosecutor Rich Weyrich, who refused to take part in the three-county plea deal, charged Harris-Moore with second-degree burglary for breaking into the Anacortes Airport and first-degree theft for taking the plane.

Harris-Moore flew the plane to San Juan County, where he was charged.
