Nasa hacker – delayed update (Asperger’s syndrome)

Reactions to revelations that McKennon has Asperger’s syndrome vary from annoyance to bemusement. The Home Office considers that lateness prevents the revelation to be a valid claim, but I would certainly disagree. Many mental health issues are discovered late, and in relation to crime, often after the illegal behaviour has been committed.
