Computer hacker loses appeal over US extradition
Hacker Gary McKinnon, accused of hacking into the United States army network, has lost his final appeal against extradition after rejecting a plea bargain in which he was offered a shorter prison sentence in exchange for pleading guilty, Times Online reports.
The 42-year old unemployed broke into the US military computers from his bedroom in North London. He faces at least 10 years in a US jail. He has always claimed that he was only seeking information on UFOs and aliens.
