Shaun Bridges, the corrupt Secret Service agent involved in the Silk Road case, may be losing his third lawyer as his situation grows bleaker. His current lawyer claims the latest appeal by Bridges is frivolous and wishes to withdraw herself from the case.
Bridges was sentenced to serve 6 years in a federal prison in December 2015 after pleading guilty to stealing bitcoin from vendors during the Silk Road investigation. At the time of his arrest, the stolen bitcoin were worth over $800,000. After a Silk Road admin, Curtis Green, was arrested in 2013 the Secret Service agent used Green’s credentials to lock vendors out of their accounts. He was able to transfer their bitcoin to his own bitcoin address.
His appeal process started in December after his sentencing and he’s already lost two lawyers. It seems that he may be about to lose his current lawyer,
