Silk Road Trial Started

Ross William Ulbricht is accused of murder-for-hire, with the Silk Road trial finally starting for a San Francisco man charged with operating an Internet black market where drugs were traded.


US district judge overruled defense objections, concluding that prosecutors could provide evidence about 6 murder plots into the trial. In respond, prosecutors claim that Ulbricht operated an underground online portal known as Silk Road, where over 100,000 customers purchased hundreds of kilograms of cocaine, heroin and other drugs. Ross Ulbricht has pleaded not guilty and denies that he was known as “Dread Pirate Roberts” online.

The government alleges that Ross Ulbricht tried to protect his illegal business by asking others to kill people who posed a threat to the Silk Road. The judge admitted that the evidence was prejudicial to the defendant and injects an element of violence into the case, but that prejudicial effect was reduced by the government’s stipulation that no actual murders happened.

In the meantime, the judge added that the charges in the case were very serious, because Ross Ulbricht was charged not with just taking part in drug distribution conspiracy, but with creating and running an Internet criminal entity of a huge scale, which could bring him tens of millions of dollars in fees. This means that evidence that Ross was trying to protect this sprawling business by soliciting murders-for-hire is therefore not unduly prejudicial.

Silk Road operator was arrested by FBI more than a year ago at a public library, where agents seized his computer. According to the government, Ross launched an online black market four years ago, claiming that he wanted to design a place for people to buy anything anonymously. The government pointed out that a spreadsheet found on Ulbricht’s computer listed “sr inc” as an asset worth $104 million.

Ross William Ulbricht was charged in Manhattan with conspiring to commit drugs trafficking, as well as with conspiring to commit computer hacking and money laundering. The prosecution claims that this scheme has been working for two and a half years. Ulbricht is also charged in federal court in Baltimore.

The industry observers admit that if convicted in both cases, Ross could face up to life sentence.

Oh,yeah, like you would stop after a few million when your business is booming and you see no trouble and you feel safe? Im pretty sure you would 'convince' yourself too that you are safe and untouchable using TOR. "Just another day", you would tell yourself...that turns into a month....that turns into 6 months....that turns into a year...because all that green would blind you to any threats.
But,good luck on that 12 step program. ;p

dogsthrobber avatarFollowing a three-week trial, jurors in the Silk Road case have found Ross Ulbricht guilty on all charges. He is facing up to life in prison.

dogsthrobber avatarAfter deliberating for less than four hours, they’d come to the conclusion that Ulbricht was guilty of charges that include money laundering conspiracy, trafficking drugs on the Internet, running a continuing criminal enterprise, computer hacking conspiracy and narcotics-trafficking conspiracy.

analogkid6103 avatarTo much still aint enough,he is in for it now.
There is no "Halftime" in Fed Pen if he gets 20-40 years he will do about 88% of the sentence.
He's lucky no one did any killing for him,he might have got a taste of the needle.

No avatarIf he had any real legal advice he would have known to challenge jurisdiction of the court and of the charges, unless you have a injured party then US cours ave no jurisdiction to hear any matter unless you consent by entering a plea and having a bullshit lawyer who will usher you into the jurisdiction of the court and bypass Constitutional mandates such as facing you're accuser (THE STATE) LOL who is not person!!!

Juliustmouse avatarOther than the government not getting a cut of his profits, who is a victim here? This is bullshit. He provided a service that actually took most of the risk of violence out of drugs. When America finally gives up on the "war on drugs" and legalizes them (one at a time) it won't be long before a service like his is established and run by the government. Yet he will still be in prison for it all...
This country is so jacked up.
