Silk Road creator Ross Ulbricht, 31, was sentenced Friday to life in prison in connection with his operation of the black market website.
In February, Ulbricht was found guilty on all seven counts against him, including charges of drug trafficking and money laundering, among others. Drugs, fake IDs and other illegal goods could be purchased on the website anonymously with digital currency bitcoin.
Ulbricht created Silk Road in 2011, and authorities shut it down in October 2013. During its operation, more than 100,000 people used the marketplace.
