LONDON - A British computer hacker accused by the United States of breaking into top secret military and space agency networks will learn the result of his six-year fight against extradition within three months, a court heard on Tuesday.

Gary McKinnon faces up to 60 years in jail if convicted in American courts for what one US prosecutor has described as the "biggest military computer hack of all time."

US officials say he knocked out hundreds of military computers in the months after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, undermining security and causing damage worth nearly $1 million.
