The hearing for Karim Baratov, 22, was scheduled for next month.

Baratov was arrested in Hamilton in March under the Extradition Act after U.S. authorities indicted him and three others — two of them allegedly officers of Russia's Federal Security Service — for computer hacking, economic espionage and other crimes.

DiCarlo has previously said Baratov is getting bored behind bars — where he's been since his arrest in March — and that he doesn't want his client to spend more time than necessary in custody if it looks like he could be exonerated or spared incarceration in the U.S.

He has stressed that waiving the extradition hearing does not mean admitting guilt.
