9 years, 6 months for Munich HA 'Khaled B'

Munich's most spectacular rocker process has come to an end after over a year. Hells Angel Khaled B. (40) has to go to prison for nine years, six months. Khaled B. seriously injured his victim Erdinc D. (45) and his brother more than five years ago with a knife attack in the 'Crowns Club' disco.

After three years on the run, the Hells Angel turned himself in 2018.

Ross Ulbricht, founder of the Silk Road

He is incarcerated at the USP in Tucson. Ross Ulbricht is infamous as the internet’s first drug lord. Ulbricht spent years on the run when he was only known as Dread Pirate Roberts.

He raked in millions by taking a fraction of the dirty sales that took place on his website. A handful of mistakes brought it all crashing down.
Ulbricht's appeals to the U.S. Court of Appeals and the U.S Supreme Court in 2018 were unsuccessful.
Ulbricht was convicted of seven crimes, including narcotics and money laundering conspiracies as well as a 'kingpin' charge usually reserved for leaders of drug cartels and mafia bosses. His mother started a petition, addressed to the Trump, which calls for clemency for her son. Maryland dismissed a 2013 3 count indictment against Ulbricht that included murder-for-hire. The charges stemmed from Ulbricht contracting an undercover FBI agent to kill a rival. Charges were dropped due to “district overlap” rather than exoneration.
Ulbricht's name is among others being considered for commutations and pardons before Trump leaves office on Jan. 20.
