Silk Road Drug Site Staff Member Avoids Further U.S. Prison Time

An Australian man who moderated the discussion forums on the underground drug website Silk Road was sentenced to time served on Tuesday after already being in custody for 17 months. Peter Nash, 42, dropped his head into his hands as U.S. District Judge Thomas Griesa in Manhattan announced the sentence, which came after he provided prosecutors information about his conduct and pleaded guilty. "It's very gratifying that Peter can return home and be reunited with his fiancée and his family," Andrew Frisch, his lawyer, said outside of court.
