British national Lauri Love, who is accused of hacking into U.S. government computers, arrives for an extradition appeal hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice in London, Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017. Authorities in America have been fighting for Love to face trial on charges of cyber-hacking, which lawyers have said could mean a sentence of up to 99 years in prison if he is found guilty.
Judges in Britain have reserved judgment in the case of an alleged computer hacker who is accused of pilfering data from the U.S. Department of Defense, the Federal Reserve and the FBI.
Alleged hacker Lauri Love has challenged his extradition to the United States, where he faces 99 years in prison on cyber-hacking charges for allegedly compromising networks between October 2012 and October 2013 and stealing data.
His attorney, Edward Fitzgerald, says it would be "unjust and oppressive" to extradite him because of his severe mental disorders. Love suffers from Asperger’s syndrome and a depressive illness.
High Court Appeal has concluded - support was fantastic - judges were erudite - arguments were well-pleaded - in the hands of higher powers now we trust.
