Silk Road Mastermind Ross Ulbricht

Sentenced to Life in Prison

by Julianne Pepitone


Ross Ulbricht, the convicted operator of the underground online black market Silk Road, was sentenced Friday to life in prison, according to WNBC.
That was the maximum sentence Ulbricht faced for seven federal convictions including narcotics trafficking, computer hacking, running a criminal enterprise and money laundering.
Ulbricht, 31, had been convicted in February 2015 on all counts he faced for his role in operating Silk Road -- and facilitating what investigators say totaled more than $200 million in anonymous online drug sales using the digital currency bitcoin. The New York City jury of six men and six women took only a few hours to deliberate and convict Ulbricht on all charges.
