Currently living in the United Kingdom, Love owns the British and the Finnish nationalities. He is required to extradite for obtaining U.S. government confidential data. The classified data includes telephone number, social security number, signal card information, employee salary information, professional health insurance and other information.

It is also understood that Love is accused of being a member of the anonymous "hacker group" and has assisted in the effort to tackle the #OpLastResort cyber attack that killed Aaron Swartz.

If convicted in the United States, Love will eventually face a 99-year prison sentence, and now the trial has been confirmed in the UK, he will eventually be closed for 12 to 14 years.

Love is currently on bail for being diagnosed with anxiety, depression, autism and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen said at Love's first extradition hearing in 2016 that Love is a patient with multiple serious disabilities. Love lawyer said the conditions of the United States prison is unreasonable.

Rev Alexander Love, Love's father, has also expressed concern about his son's life because he does not think his son can handle the wounds brought to the United States.

After the court verdict, Love responded: "It's not just for myself, I hope it will set a precedent for future co-ops where they can stand trial."
