NEW YORK (AP) — A federal judge in New York has scheduled a trial for a California man arrested on charges he masterminded a secret drug-dealing website.
Judge Katherine Forrest set the Nov. 3 date on Friday as Ross William Ulbricht pleaded not guilty to four charges in a rewritten indictment.
He's accused of drug trafficking, computer hacking, money laundering and conspiracy. The 29-year-old purported operator of the Silk Road website was arrested last year at a public library in San Francisco, where he lived.
The website let users anonymously browse through nearly 13,000 listings and make purchases with the virtual currency Bitcoin.
A prosecutor said additional charges may yet be filed.
