Silk Road 2 Founder Finally Sentenced 5 Years After His Arrest






Immediately after the Silk Road was taken down in 2013, a marketplace known as the Silk Road 2 launched. The new darknet market was run by a person who called himself the Dread Pirate Roberts 2 and he was arrested a few months later in November 2014. However, privacy advocate Thomas White, otherwise known as DPR2, was released on bail for the next five years and has only now been sentenced to 64 months in jail.

Silk Road 2 Founder Sentenced
The founder of the notorious Silk Road 2 marketplace has been sentenced to prison this week for operating the illegal website for over a year. Thomas White was known as DPR2 when he ran the underground marketplace Silk Road 2 back in 2014. SR2 was not affiliated with the original Silk Road (SR) but popped up on the invisible web roughly 30 days after SR was seized in October 2013. Similarly to the original, SR2 sold narcotics, fake ID cards, counterfeit merchandise, credit cards, and software. Law enforcement said that SR2 made roughly $8 million every month after it launched for a year.

Law enforcement wasted no time investigating the newly created SR2 and arrested both White (a.k.a. ?St Exo? or ?DPR2?) and Blake Benthall (a.k.a. ?Defcon?) a year later in November 2014. However, White has been out on bail since his arrest and has remained in the public eye over the last five years. Benthall was charged with conspiracy to traffic narcotics and was released and has yet to be sentenced by any courts. Silk Road 2 creators mocking U.S. law enforcement.
According to multiple SR2 vendors and law enforcement officials, the website grew fast because of people?s admiration for the original SR and its leader the Dread Pirate Roberts. An investigator from the National Crime Agency (NCA), Paul Chowles, told the media this week that White told his band of companions that he would stop using his St Exo monicker and start calling himself DPR2. ?DPR2, aka Thomas White, was the boss. He was the controlling mind in all of this, and he was the one driving it forward,? Chowles explained in a recent interview.
“Dread Pirate Roberts is now immortal and if you devote yourself to that ideal, and our enemies cannot stop it, then the idea becomes something else entirely,” DPR2 stated in 2014. The post continued:
They may have sunk one ship, but now they have awoken the kraken.

Ulbricht Family Underscores the Contrast Between White’s Punishment and the Much Harsher Sentencing Ross Received
Reports detail that after White was released on bail, he also used the name ?The Cthulhu? online and commented regularly on tech articles, forums, and became known as a privacy expert. He also ran a few websites that focused on data breaches and ran numerous Tor nodes as well. Motherboard attempted to talk with White this week but he declined and also deleted his Cthulhu profile. White pleaded guilty for his involvement with the SR2 website which involved charg...
