Hacker Gary McKinnon went in pursuit of aliens and cracked the US army’s computer network. He now faces 10 years jail time.

McKinnon, a 42 year old system analyst from Wood Green, North London broke into the US armies ‘most secure” military computers seeking information about government coverups of UFOs and aliens…

The US government is now seeking to extradite McKinnon to face charges.

McKinnon accessed files on 97 US Military and NASA computers as well as rendering 300 computers at a US Navy weapons station inoperable.

Mckinnon has been appealing the extradition process, but yesterday exhausted these channels when he lost his final appeal. McKinnon has rejected a plea bargain that offered him four years jail time and will now face trial in the US courts.
