Ross Ulbricht was found guilty in the Silk Road trial, which is entirely unsurprising. He was caught dead to rights with his laptop open to the admin page of Silk Road. He also kept extensive, detailed records of everything. The jury deliberated for only three hours. I'd feel a little bad for the guy if not for him ordering hits on people. The prosecutor is looking to make an example of him and never offered a plea deal, so I'm sure he'll get life in prison. He's a pretty boy, so I expect he'll make a fine bitch for the homies. From world class drug kingpin to prison bitch. It seems like he was relying entirely on the Tor browser to protect himself. I don't know why he kept records of anything, why he didn't regularly destroy his hard drives, and why he didn't secure the Silk Road page better. Although investigators were able to figure out that he was running Silk Road just through a simple Google search and some old forum posts, so it seems like he wasn't very secretive about any of it. Seems like he was overconfident and not terribly bright.
