http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/dec/22/bitcoin-entrepreneur-sentenced-jail

Quote
The bitcoin entrepreneur Charlie Shrem has been sentenced to two years in jail for his part in a money laundering scheme, after a bitcoin exchange he ran was found to be aiding users of the Silk Road black market.

Shrem was previously a senior figure in the bitcoin community, sitting on the board of the foundation which oversees the cryptocurrency, while also running his own exchange, BitInstant. He resigned as a board member after his arrest in January.
