Finally.... Gary McKinnon's Decade Long Threat of US Jail is Over

RT Report
"My son has now been under arrest for longer than any British citizen ever has. He hasn't raped anyone, he hasn't murdered anyone, so can't understand how this can be happening to him, as no matter how much anyone may choose to exaggerate his crime, the fact is that his crime was tapping on a keyboard in his bedroom in north London in search of information on aliens from outer space..."

Janis Sharp has said she is "overwhelmed and incredibly happy" after the announcement that her son, British computer hacker Gary McKinnon, will not be extradited to the US.
Mr McKinnon, 46, who admits accessing US government computers but claims he was looking for evidence of UFOs, has been fighting extradition since 2002. His mother told a press conference that Mr McKinnon "couldn't speak" when he heard the news. Mr McKinnon, from Wood Green, north London, who has been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism, faced 60 years in jail if convicted in the US.
