Harris-Moore is currently serving a 6-1/2-year sentence after pleading guilty to more than 40 felonies.
After Harris-Moore was arrested in July 2010, his attorney, John Henry Browne, entered into negotiations across multiple jurisdictions to come up with an agreement in which Harris-Moore would take responsibility for his crimes, cooperate with investigators and sign over any book or movie rights to pay restitution.
But Skagit County refused to enter into those negotiations. Now, two years later, prosecutors there have charged him with second-degree burglary and first-degree theft.
"We believe he committed a crime in Skagit County and he should be held accountable for it," Skagit County Prosecutor Rich Weyrich said.
Browne called the separate Skagit County charges "silly."
"It just seems like a horrendous waste of time. I thought Colton was supposed to be the juvenile here. It's silly," Browne said.
