Silk Road admin could face up to 20 years after pleading guilty to drug charge
An Irishman who went by the online moniker "Libertas" on the now-defunct drug website Silk Road pleaded guilty on Friday to drug trafficking charges.
According to federal prosecutors in New York, Gary Davis served as a paid moderator and later administrator for Silk Road for several months in 2013.
Silk Road’s founder Ross Ulbricht, who was convicted at a 2015 trial, is currently serving a double life sentence. On June 28, 2018, the Supreme Court declined to hear Ulbricht’s appeal.
