Pentagon hacker in final bid against extradition

Saturday October 10 2009

COMPUTER hacker Gary Mc- Kinnon will make a last plea to Alan Johnson, the UK Home Secretary, against being extradited to the United States after his appeal to go to the Supreme Court was rejected.

Lawyers for Mr McKinnon, who has Asperger's syndrome, said they will submit a fresh psychiatric report showing his "extremely fragile mental state" after two High Court judges yesterday refused him leave to go to Britain's highest court.

Mr McKinnon (43) faces up to 70 years' jail if he is convicted of what US prosecutors have called "the biggest military computer hack of all time".

Speaking outside the Royal Courts of Justice, in Central London, his mother, Janice Sharp, condemned yesterday's decision and said that her son was "suicidal".

US authorities claim that he hacked 97 military computers and caused damage costing $800,000 (€543,000).

Mr McKinnon admits to hacking into Pentagon computers but denies that it was malicious. (© The Times, London)

Quote:Oh he is still here, shows you how much I know as I dont watch TV or read the bull
I honestly already thought that they had extradited him. I still do not see what he has done majorly wrong.
It should be those bastards who deliberately left the systems wide open that should be punished
but then they would be prosecuting themselves and we cant have that can we...

It's probably as much 'what he saw' as 'what he did'.
