Richard O'Dwyer's deal with the US is "a first" in extradition cases, his lawyer has said.
Under the agreement, O'Dwyer must pay US authorities £20,000 and not break any US laws, "associate only with law abiding people" and work regularly in a lawful occupation.
So far as we know this is a first in extradition cases - and a sensible solution for UK defendants faced with an ever-growing extra-territorial reach of US prosecutions.
I expect this mechanism will be used by UK defendants in future US extradition cases now the precedent has been established and at least until the Government introduces the promised forum amendment into the Extradition Act 2003.
