A consolidation from various jurisdictions for Harris-Moore makes the most sense and would be better for everybody, attorney John Henry Browne told KIRO-TV.
U.S. officials in the Bahamas checked on Harris-Moore on Sunday and found him physically fine but depressed at his capture, Browne said. He also said Harris-Moore had called an aunt, but not his mother who lives on Camano Island.
The mother, Pam Kohler, contacted him about representing her son but he has not yet been retained, Browne said.
Its possible Harris-Moore could stand trial in jurisdictions from Western Washington, the Midwest and the Bahamas, Browne said, but he said charges should be consolidated.
It seems to me it would make a lot of sense to get him from Bahamas to Seattle and get other jurisdictions to allow Seattle federal court to handle the matter, Browne said. The best thing would be to get it to Seattle better for everybody.
