Accused Cyber-Bazaar ‘Pirate’ Has Bail Hearing Delayed

Ross William Ulbricht denied charges that he ran a billion-dollar online drug “bazaar” and plotted a murder-for-hire, his lawyer said after persuading a judge to postpone a bail hearing until Oct. 9.

Ulbricht, curly-haired, clean-shaven and wearing a red jail jumpsuit with his hands and legs shackled, made his second appearance in federal court in San Francisco this week after being arrested by the FBI Oct. 1 at a city public library.
