Ever since Ross Ulbricht was convicted to life in prison, there has been some significant backlash over this decision. In fact, his defense lawyer continues to question the credibility of the collected evidence. Moreover, two corrupted former law enforcement agents were involved in this case as well. Right now, a three-judge panel is contemplating the reasoning behind Ulbricht’s life sentence.
Ross Ulbricht is convicted to life in prison without parole for running Silk Road, a sentence that seems unfair and overly harsh at the time. Fast forward to today, and the matter continues to spark heated debates. Ulbricht’s defense lawyer seems to gain some ground in having judge’s look over the case once again.
Ross Ulbricht May Have His Sentence Reduced
To be more precise, a three-judge panel is not too certain Ulbricht’s life sentence punishment is justified. These judges openly criticized some aspects of the trial. Several parents of deceased former Silk Road customers were called in to testify at that time. This erased any legal chance Ross had of receiving a fair sentence, as these testimonies put an emotional burden on the case.
