Ross's mother, Lyn Ulbricht, criticizes the decision of the judge of the Court of New York, "is a totally unfair process. Three of our witnesses were refused as well as many of the evidence in our favor. And most of the evidence were skewed to show only one aspect of site activity ".

According to the indictment, the site had recorded more than a million drug transactions in three years of existence.

"The ' Dread Pirate Roberts ' â€" the pseudonym Ross â€" thought you could escape at any persecution, but we showed that it was possible to identify users of the website and email addresses to pursue these users", says Peter Skinner.
