Silk Road Agent Sentenced, Again, to Prison Time

•, C. Edward Kelso

Agent Bridges is already serving nearly six years for thieving money from Silk Road members while investigating Ross Ulbricht.

The new round of prison time stems from charges brought after Agent Bridges was first convicted. Authorities believe he zapped at least 1,600 bitcoins to himself while the ink was drying on that first guilty plea.

As pointed out by Mr. Farivar, Agent Bridges "laundered the funds stolen from the United States government by moving the funds out of the BTC-e account and into other various online wallets and accounts," according to court documents.

Among many outrages, one immediately jumps out of Mr. Farivar's accounts. In a courtesy not normally extended non-government citizens, Agent Bridges "was temporarily free between the time that he was previously convicted in late 2015 and then re-arrested in early 2016," the article claims.
