Hacker Pleads He's Nerd.. Not Terrorist

A COMPUTER nerd branded the world's No1 military hacker denied being a terrorist yesterday as a judge ruled he should be extradited to the US.

Brit Gary McKinnon, 40, faces up to 70 years' jail if convicted there of breaking into secret American defence files.

However, he insisted he had merely been searching for evidence of UFOs.

He said outside court: "My intention was never to disrupt security. But I feel the case has effectively already been tried and I've been hung, drawn and quartered." Mirror.co.uk - News - EXCLUSIVE: HACKER PLEADS HE'S NERD.. NOT TERRORIST
