A Briton charged with hacking into US military computer networks is launching a last-ditch legal bid to avoid extradition.Software expert Gary McKinnon could face a lifetime in jail if he is found guilty in the US of sabotaging vital defence systems after the September 11 terror attacks.
He has always said that he had no malicious intent but was looking for classified documents on UFOs which he believed the US authorities had suppressed.
He has signed a statement accepting that his hacking constituted an offence under the UK's Computer Misuse Act 1990.
He and his family hope that, if there is a trial, it will be in the UK.

My guess is that in the end, he won't do any hard time for this.
Maybe he'll even get to write a book, go on TV, etc... & make a few bucks.

How is it, when someone does something bad like muder, rape or molestation they get 15 years or some low level such a naughty person sentence. But when it's something like this involving the government it's life??
