Didn't want to say anything until I saw a picture, but our local King 5 TV got the shot of Colton Harris-Moore deplaning three hours ago (Wed, July 21) at Boeing Field. For those not from the area, SeaTac (Seattle Tacoma) is our main commercial airport, while Boeing Field is the region's main center for General Aviation, charter and transport companies and, of course, Boeing repairs, test flights, etc.

King 5 TV on Colton's Arrival

Colton will now be held in FDC SeaTac and is due for a court appearance tomorrow afternoon. Initial remands and arraignments etc are really nothing substantive so I don't plan to make the trek down. The issue of bail is an interesting one, though. From my understanding, if Colton's lawyer is somehow able to arrange bail for him on the Federal charge, Washington authorities could immediately arrest Colton for the escape and send him to begin serving out the remaining two years or so of his original sentence. (But I am not a lawyer, I don't even play one on TV, and thus my legal speculation is worthless.)

  1. I think you should attend the hearing. He smiled at you in Nassau. In this confusing time of lawyers, judges and cash vultures, he will be very comforted seeing you in the audience. Other than his mom, you might be the one person he really wants to see there.
