UK MPs are calling for hacker Gary McKinnon to serve any sentence he 
receives in a British jail.

Mr McKinnon faces extradition to the US for breaking into American 
military networks between February 2001 and March 2002.

He trespassed on networks owned by Nasa, the US Army, Navy, Air Force, 
and Department of Defense.

If tried and convicted in a US court, Mr McKinnon could face decades of 
jail time, and millions of dollars in fines.
