NSA hacker gets off

Gary McKinnon, a British computer hacker who has been fighting extradition to the U.S. for seven years, will not be extradited, because of the high risk he could kill himself, Britain’s Home Secretary Theresa May said on Tuesday. He’s accused by the United States of causing more than $700,000 damage to U.S. military systems and was facing up to 60 years in a U.S. prison if found guilty of what one U.S. prosecutor called the “biggest military computer hack of all time”. McKinnon admitted hacking into Pentagon and NASA computers, claiming he was looking for evidence of aliens.
