StExo Ordered to Forfeit £490,000 in Bitcoin

At Liverpool Crown Court, HHJ Teague QC ordered White, 26, to forfeit £493,550.00 from his Bitcoin holdings. White is currently serving a prison sentence for drug crimes, money laundering, and possession of child pornography. He pleaded guilty to supplying class A drugs and money laundering in connection with his role in the development and administration of Silk Road 2.0. The child pornography charges stemmed from content discovered by law enforcement officers when searching White’s electronic devices.

White was sentenced to five years and four months in prison at Liverpool Crown Court in 2019. At the time of sentencing, the National Crime Agency revealed that White had at least 50 Bitcoins in his possession.

Tyrone Surgeon, Branch Commander at the National Crime Agency, per the National Crime Agency press release:

“Thomas White was a well-regarded member of the original Silk Road hierarchy. He used this to his advantage when the original site was closed down and profited significantly from his criminal activity. This case proves that crime doesn’t pay – not only has he spent the last two years in prison, he now has to hand over nearly £500,000. This has been a complex, international investigation and highlights that we will use every tool at our disposal to disrupt organized criminals from profiting from their crime.”

Crime doesn’t pay? Tell that to WHM. And if you don’t care about screwing people over, you can get paid like Empire.

G. Gordon Liddy (a Nixon FBI criminal) said, “Of course crime pays. If it didn’t pay, they wouldn’t do it!”

Possession of CP was most likely a threat and used against him to get him to plea. Don’t believe the hype, StExo was not about CP, he was about making money selling drugs.

He’s rich. Id do that time for that money. People like me are going get framed and due the time for nothing. He probably got pinched using telegram. He was a teen with cp, that’s like saying teens should die for having sex. You think your the righteous, but your the devil. Fake bitches just want to not grow old.
