SEATTLE (AP) -- The sentencing for Colton Harris-Moore in the "Barefoot Bandit" case has been rescheduled to Dec. 9 in federal court in Seattle to allow more time to settle state charges. He had been scheduled for sentencing Oct. 28.

Defense attorney John Henry Browne told The Daily Herald (http://bit.ly/pcIGvr ) extra time also was requested by federal probation officials to review documents describing Harris-Moore's childhood on Camano Island.

Harris-Moore is accused of a multistate crime spree that included plane theft, boat theft and multiple burglaries in homes and business. He evaded arrest for more than two years and was arrested in July 2010 in the Bahamas.

In June, Harris-Moore pleaded guilty to seven federal charges, but he still faces more than 30 charges in Island, Skagit, San Juan and Snohomish counties.
