NASA Hacker to serve 99Yrs Jail term if extradited and found guilty in the U.S.

 The U.K Government on Monday Nov 14,2016, ordered the extradition of a British man to the U.S. on charges of hacking NASA and the Department of Defense computers.

 The accused, Laurie Love, a 31-year-old hacktivist was charged by the U.S. in 2013 for stealing confidential data from thousands of government employees, credit card details which investigators claim to amount to millions of damages of which if convicted, he could face a maximum sentence of 99 years.

 An extract from a statement signed by U.K. Home Secretary Amber Rudd reads;

"Mr. Love has been charged with various computer hacking offenses which included targeting U.S. military and federal government agencies," the statement read.

 However, Love's lawyer claims that Love h*cked into the U.S. government's computer to protest the suicide of activist Aaron Swartz who was also facing serious h*ck-related charges.

 Love had on one occasion expressed his distrust in the U.S. judiciary system.

"I would say my prospects of due process in America are essentially zero," Love has previously said

Love who has been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome has a history of depression and there are worries surrounding him that he may attempt suicide.
