Lauri Love could be prosecuted in Britain after winning his appeal against extradition to America.

Asperger syndrome sufferer, Lauri Love, will not be extradited to the US after all.

The Americans had wanted the 33-year-old to stand trial in America after he allegedly stole data from agencies including the Federal Reserve, US army, defence department and the FBI.

Two High Court judges urged the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to prosecute Mr Love in England.

Mr Love spoke after the ruling:
“I’m greatly relieved I am no longer facing the prospect of being locked up for potentially the rest of my life in a country I have never visited. If this precedent can avoid someone less fortunate having to go through this ordeal then that would make it all worthwhile.”

In the course of Mr Love’s High Court appeal his lawyers argued that extradition would not be in the interests of justice for reasons including the high risk that Mr Love would kill himself.
