Silk Road Mastermind Pleads For Light Sentence

1 post in this topic

He wants 20 years, but faces the possibility of life behind bars

The convicted founder of Silk Road, the shuttered online black market, is pleading for a lighter sentence.

Ross Ulbricht’s plea came in a letter to the judge who is set to make a decision Friday. Ulbricht, 31 faces the possibility of life in prison. The letter is the first time Ulbricht has spoken out for himself, according to Business Insider. He did not testify during the trial.

“When I created Silk Road I wasn’t seeking financial gain,” he wrote in the letter.. “I created Silk Road because… I believed at the time that people should have the right to buy and sell whatever they wanted so long as they weren’t hurting anyone else.”
