    Federal prosecutors said Ross Ulbricht's website, hosted on the hidden "dark web", sold more than $200m (£131m) worth of drugs anonymously.
    The 31-year-old was found guilty in New York of charges including conspiracy to commit drug trafficking, money laundering and computer hacking.
    The site was shut down in 2013 after police arrested Ulbricht.
    In February he was convicted of operating the site for nearly three years from 2011.

    This is a load of bs. A nonviolent crime should never warrant throwing away the key.

    Though he really screwed up his OPSEC in a really dumb way when he got caught.

    While I'm not going to comment on whether the sentence was fair or not, I'm pretty sure that he paid to have people killed; there is a wee bit of violence in something along those lines.

    Pretty crazy huh? I looked into it to see what it was all about one time when my coworker told me about it and I was sooo surprised at what you can find on there. From drugs, guns and even a hit-man.
