Silk Road: Ross Ulbricht Files Appeal Against Convictions and Sentencing

Ross Ulbricht, the man convicted of running the online drug emporium Silk Road, has appealed against his conviction and sentence, according to court documents filed on Thursday.
In February, a jury in a federal court in Manhattan found Ulbricht, who went by the alias “Dread Pirate Roberts”, guilty on seven counts related to the drug marketplace, including running a narcotics-trafficking enterprise, money laundering and computer hacking.
