The Crown Prosecution Service has decided it will not prosecute self-confessed NASA hacker Gary McKinnon in the U.K., edging him closer to extradition to the U.S.McKinnon's diagnosis with Asperger's Syndrome, a condition on the autistic spectrum, had not been taken into account in the decision, a Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) spokesperson told ZDNet UK on Thursday.
U.S. authorities last year won the extradition of McKinnon to face charges of breaking into 97 military and NASA computers. In December, McKinnon's legal team sent a letter to the CPS in which he confessed to offenses under section 2 of the Computer Misuse Act, in an attempt to be prosecuted in the U.K. rather than the U.S.
McKinnon faces up to 70 years in a maximum security prison if convicted of hacking charges under U.S. law. In a statement regarding its decision, the CPS said the offenses McKinnon admitted to in his confession, including the unauthorized access to a computer system, are not as serious as the charges US prosecutors have leveled against him.

EXPERIENCE IS NOT WHAT HAPPENS TO A MAN BUT IT IS WHAT A MAN DOES WITH WHAT HAPPENS TO HIM
