As the Silk Road trials started earlier this week, a lot of Bitcoin enthusiasts around the world are waiting to see what the outcome will be. Ross Ulbricht’s trial is a major milestone in the young history of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency, as a lot of mainstream media is following the proceedings closely. The first shot has been fired however, as Ross Ulbricht did admit he created the Silk Road platform.

As for Ulbricht's eventual arrest in a San Francisco public library in October 2013, Dratel said it was all a setup, where Ulbricht had been tricked into being "in that library that day to take the fall for the people operating the website."

Lol. Is this the best they could come up with?

Quote
Assistant US Attorney Timothy Howard, on the other hand, argued that this was all nonsense and that Ulbricht had been "caught red handed." At the time of his arrest, Howard said, Ulbricht was actively communicating online as Dread Pirate Roberts with a member of Silk Road's support staff – who just happened to be an undercover FBI agent.

The most interesting part of this case is whether the FBI obtained access to data legally and didn't hack into it legally without a warrant. That's the only way I see him getting out of these charges.
