>UK Blocks 'UFO-hacker' McKinnon Extradition To US

>Home Secretary Theresa May has announced that Gary McKinnon, who
>was accused of hacking into the Pentagon's computer network,
>will not be extradited to the US. The move is due to the risk of
>McKinnon ending his own life.

>The home secretary said that there is no doubt McKinnon is
>seriously ill, that she carefully examined the medical evidence
>and took legal advice, concluding that his extradition would
>pose such a high risk that he would end his life, which
>restricts his human rights.

>McKinnon, 46, suffers from Asperger's syndrome. If convicted in
>the US, he could face up to 60 years in jail.

>The case of McKinnon has become the first time the British
>government has refused to extradite someone across the Atlantic
>since the existing UK-USA extradition treaty came into force in
>January 2004, The Independent reports.
