“My son is serving a double life sentence plus 40 years without parole for the creation of a web site when he was only 26 years old and he was interested in free markets and privacy. All the offences with which he is charged are nonviolent. This verdict is shocking” — wrote the mother of Ulbricht in the petition.
The representatives of the Free Ross Ulbricht convinced that the police have abused the authority in the course of a Federal investigation against the founder of Silk Road, and the trial, in their opinion, was unfair.
“This draconian sentence, not justice”, — emphasized in the petition.
According to the document, a life sentence Ulbricht will cost American taxpayers $2 million In Free Ross Ulbricht felt it more appropriate to release this “extremely kind, generous and creative man.”
“Despite the verdict, Ross Ulbricht hopes for a second chance, and dreams of reunification with their loved ones, and also ready to use their knowledge and skills in order to help society as a whole”, — with these words the authors concluded the petition.
It is noteworthy that earlier this month, the national Convention of the libertarian party of the United States unanimously approved and sent to President Donald Trump, the petition for pardon of Ross Ulbricht.
Note, the U.S. Supreme court denied the motion for reconsideration of the sentence of the founder of the Silk Road.
Earlier, an alleged associate of Ulbricht canadian Roger Thomas Clark, also known as Variety Jones , or just VJ, was extradited from Thailand to the United States. He faced the minimum term is 10 years.
Irishman Gary Davis, another alleged administrator of Silk Road, allegedly hiding under the pseudonym of Libertas, soon may be in a correctional center in new York, where he will await trial.
