The trial of Ross Ulbricht began on Jan. 13. The 30-year-old is accused of being the mastermind behind Silk Road, what was once the planet’s biggest online marketplace for illegal drugs

The operation was worth $1.2 billion before federal law enforcement shuttered it in 2013. The kingpin behind Silk Road operated under the alias “Dread Pirate Roberts,” a reference to the Rob Reiner film The Princess Bride. Ulbricht was arrested at a San Francisco public library that October, and officials seized his laptop. He pleaded not guilty in February 2014.
