McKinnon charges dropped after ten year battle

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_McKinnon

Charges against Gary McKinnon for breaching US government IT systems have been dropped by UK authorities, bringing a decade long battle to an end.

In a statement from the Crown Prosecution Court and Metropolitan Police it was announced that a case against McKinnon would not proceed in the UK, following the decision to block his extradition to the US.

The joint statement highlighted the difficulties in bring a case against McKinnon in England, in part due to the logistics of transferring sensitive information prepared for US courts over to London, and need for US witnesses in a trial based in London. The chances of bringing charges against McKinnon are also relatively low, the CPS contended.
