Man Accused of Running Silk Road Sent to New York to Face Charges

A federal judge on Wednesday ordered a California man charged with operating a notorious online drug marketplace known as Silk Road to be sent to New York to face charges.

The order by U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero came during a brief court hearing in San Francisco for Ross Ulbricht. Federal authorities in New York have charged Ulbricht with three felonies related to the operation of the website.

Ulbricht's attorney, public defender Brandon LeBlanc, has denied the charges.
