British Hacker Spared Extradition to U.S

Holy crap, after almost a decade of trying, it looks like Gary McKinnon finally found a way to keep from being extradited to the United States.

A British computer hacker accused by the United States of breaking into military systems will be spared from extradition because he is at risk of committing suicide, interior minister Theresa May said on Tuesday. Gary McKinnon, who has been fighting extradition for seven years, faced up to 60 years in an American jail if found guilty of what one U.S. prosecutor called the "biggest military computer hack of all time".
