On Tuesday, a philosophy PhD turned “online entrepreneur” and Silk Road drug dealer pleaded guilty to his part in a conspiracy to sell 17 pounds of meth for more than $600,000 on the Silk Road.
Jason Weld Hagen, 40, known as “hammertime” on the Silk Road, was charged alongside three other Washington residents on December 18, 2013, for conspiracy to distribute meth around the world through the Silk Road in addition to 15 counts of money laundering. All four pleaded not guilty. The arrest came two months after the Silk Road servers were seized by the feds in Iceland and the online marketplace’s mastermind, Ross Ulbricht, was arrested in October 2013.
