Submission + - McKinnon extradition decision due (

another random user writes: The UK Home Secretary Theresa May is due to announce whether computer hacker Gary McKinnon will be extradited to the US.

Mr McKinnon, who admits accessing US government computers but claims he was looking for evidence of UFOs, has been fighting extradition since 2006. The 46-year-old, who has been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, could face 60 years in jail if convicted in the US.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that Mrs May will also announce changes to Britain's extradition arrangements with the US.
