Guam - Accused Russian hacker Roman Seleznev will be heading to Washington State where he faces federal charges.

Seleznev appeared in the District Court of Guam on Thursday for his motion for release and motion to continue, both of which were denied by Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood. The judge however did grant the warrant of removal.  Seleznev faces multiple federal charges in Washington for aggravated identity theft and bank fraud. His defense team argues he was kidnapped by federal agents in the Maldives and brought to Guam.

Seleznev is described by the Secret Service as one of the world's most prolific traffickers of stolen information.  He is accused of hacking into computer servers worldwide to facilitate his multi-million dollar illegal operation which involved stolen credit card data.
