Seattle - The youthful thief who led a two-year crime spree in stolen boats, cars and planes is out of solitary confinement.

The Washington Department of Corrections confirmed on Thursday that Colton Harris-Moore was transferred from Walla Walla State Penitentiary to Stafford Creek Corrections Centre in Aberdeen.

A spokesperson says the 21-year-old known as the "Barefoot Bandit" had been in intensive management with death row inmates as soon he began his sentence because he was a high-profile prisoner. He was placed on Wednesday with the general population.

His lawyer, John Henry Browne, says Harris-Moore is enrolling in an education programme and will have better access to counselling at Stafford Creek as he serves his seven-year sentence.

He was arrested in the Bahamas in 2010 after crash-landing a stolen plane.
