Submission + - Hacker McKinnon to be extradited to US (guardian.co.uk)

Vainglorious Coward writes: When UK hacker and Asperger's sufferer Gray MacKinnon lost the judicial review of his case it seemed likely that he would be extradited to the US to face charges of hacking almost a hundred systems causing $700,000 worth of damage. Today the UK home secretary rejected his last-ditch attempt to avoid extradition adding that the "his extradition to the United States must proceed forthwith". McKinnon's relatives are expressing concerns for his heatlh, with his lawyer going so far as to claim that extradition would make the 43-year old's death "virtually certain".
