Love, 31, is alleged to have been involved in the #OpLastResort hack in 2013, which targeted the US Army, the US Federal Reserve, the FBI, NASA, and the Missile Defense Agency in retaliation over the suicide, while awaiting trial, of Aaron Swartz. Love has been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome and depression, conditions the defense argued would cause him to struggle in the US prison system. However, “I have found the medical facilities in the United States prison estate on arrival and during any sentence if he is convicted available to him, are such that I can be satisfied his needs will be comprehensively met by the US authorities,” the judge Nina Tempia said, adding “there is a strong public interest that the United Kingdom should honor its extradition treaty obligations with other countries.”
