UK rules out charges against Pentagon hacker

A British court ruled in 2006 that he should be extradited to the United States to face trial. If convicted by a U.S. court, he could face up to 70 years in prison. McKinnon has been battling the British court decision ever since.

His lawyers asked Britain's Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to consider a request to prosecute him in Britain where they believe he would receive a much shorter sentence.

But the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said a review had concluded it would be wrong for him to face trial at home.
