Silk Road Operator Got a Life Sentence

Silk Road Operator Got a Life Sentence

Ross Ulbricht, the operator of the infamous Silk Road, was sentenced to life in prison by the US district court a few days ago. During the court hearing, the parents of the victims of drug overdoses were heard, after which Ulbricht broke down in tears. However, this didn’t help to mitigate the judge decision.

ax253_0620_9.th.jpg

The 31-year-old site operator was handed 5 sentences, 2 of which are for life – all of them are to be served concurrently with no chance of parole. The experts admit that the judge handed out the most severe sentence available to the operator of the online market for illegal goods.

Ross Ulbrict had begged the court to leave him at least his old age, but the judge rejected. The judge also rejected arguments that the illegal online marketplace had reduced harm among drug users by taking illegal activities off the street. Silk Road was known as the largest site to trade illegal drugs and other services. In March 2013, the website had 7,000 drugs for sale and generated over $200m in sales and $13m in commissions over its life.

The site operator was convicted in February after a trial on 7 counts, ranging from selling drugs and money laundering to running an ongoing criminal enterprise. In response, the defense suggested that Ross appeared to be the victim of a complex hacking attack that left him looking like the fall guy. However, he was actually arrested in the public library with his fingers at the keyboard, running Silk Road. Defense also argued that the website was actually a boon to the health of its clients, particularly those who habitually used drugs, but the judge argued back that Silk Road, on the contrary, created users who hadn’t tried drugs before.

During the court hearing, parents of children who had died while using drugs obtained on Silk Road spoke to the court. For example, the father of a 25-year-old young man who died of a heroin overdose condemned people who have defended Ulbricht publicly, saying that his son would have been there if Silk Road had never existed. Then, a mother of a 16-year-old boy who died after taking a powerful synthetic at a party and jumping from a 2nd-story roof, described her life since her son’s death to the judge.

STEVENS8134033002 avatarThe government need to make this Legal & provide treatment facilities to the public. If you don't agree just look at the prohibition on alcohol in the United States of America. Legalize regulate tax is they way to end the drug epidemic. Yes there is alcohol everywhere and yes there are deaths from alcohol use; however not everyone is using alcohol. Legalize the drugs and it will stop the black market demand for them dead in it's track. So you still don't agree? Ask yourself just how many lives have been lost to the war on drugs? I am a American citizen who knows our govement has stripped us all of our constitutional rights a very long time ago.

No avatarApparently he made 183 million dollars and he was still at it.

He could have stopped at 10 or 20 million and had a good life.

No avatarSTEVEN8134033002 I completely disagree with your thinking. In some states they have legalized marijuana use and now here in Humboldt county the Mexican Drug Cartels have stepped it up a notch with murders, destruction of the land, averting the water flow from some small tributaries that feed the Trinity River for their grows in an area where the salmon are in danger, and at some of the sites that the DEA have raided they have had to call in HASMAT to handle extremely dangerous pesticides and rat poisons that have been poured out all over the ground in their grows. So now we have to deal with the poisoning of rivers as well. And to add to it, we are now in a serious drought situation here. So you see, even though the use of marijuana has been made legal in some states, here in the state and county were people in those states will get it from. The drug cartels that will most likely have supplied it has taken it to the next level in violence and destruction. So when someone says that smoking marijuana is a victimless crime... Think again.

milew666 avatarThe government wouldn't disclose how they located the server, at all. Indicating that they used illegal means to do so. Therefore, violating his 4th amendment rights. But they are the government, they can do what they want...
