Submission + - USA Govement seeks extradiotn of UK student for fi

Gimble writes: The BBC reports that UK Richard O'Dwyer will learn of his fate today after the US Government requested his extradition to face charges of running a file sharing site.

O'Dwyer operated the site "TV-Shack" which didn't offer any files itself, but posted links to streams and files hosted elsewhere for 3 years from 2007 until 2010. O'Dwyer was first arrested in June last year by British police acting on information from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The domestic investigation was subsequently dropped, but Mr O’Dwyer was re-arrested in May on an extradition warrant to face charges in America.
