Darkweb drug kingpin Cody Ward = 14 years

He said he was troubled from childhood by bullying. The drug dealer was linked with $17m worth of cryptocurrency transactions. Cody Ronald Ward, 27, was sentenced to 14 years, a decade of which is in custody. He said he became an online NSW drug kingpin to find purpose in life. Ward pleaded guilty to six charges, each of which carries a maximum sentence of life. Ward operated a dark web drug business from his Callala Bay home for four years. He was busted with MDMA, 2.5 kg of cocaine, meth, 100,000 LSD tabs, Xanax, $80k cash, laptops and money counters.
Inside the Goulburn 'Supermax' prison, Ward says he was threatened by bikies with blades in an extortion attempt after he was dragged off-camera. He has since been diagnosed in custody with 'social anxiety disorder'.
