Ross Ulbricht commissioned no fewer than six murders for hire earlier this year to protect his position as the operator of the sprawling online drug market Silk Road, according to federal prosecutors. The new accusations come as the U.S. Attorney's Office in New York prepares to argue before a judge this morning that Ulbricht should be denied bail. Two murder for hire plots authorities say Ulbricht put into motion were detailed in the charges against him, and the four new attempts are described in a filing federal prosecutors provided to the Baltimore Sun. Ulbricht is accused of running Silk Road over the course of more than two years and building it into the most popular place to buy drugs online.

A federal judge in Manhattan denied bail Thursday to Ross Ulbricht after federal prosecutors alleged that he plotted six killings earlier this year to protect his position as the operator of the sprawling online drug market Silk Road. Assistant U.S. Attorney Serrin Turner said it's not clear whether five of the intended victims actually exist. But Turner argued that Ulbricht could not be released without endangering the public or running the risk that he would flee. He said the 29-year-old had explored obtaining citizenship in another country and ordered fake identity documents.

The Court of Appeals decision this week that criminal defendants have a right to counsel at court commissioner hearings raises all manner of practical difficulties for the state. Commissioner hearings can take place 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and the Maryland Public Defender's Office estimates that it will take as many as 250 more attorneys to handle the workload. That will be expensive and difficult to manage. But it also serves to uphold a fundamental principle of our criminal justice system: No one should be deprived of his or her liberty without having access to counsel, and that right should not be contingent on a defendant's ability to pay for a lawyer.

A Baltimore circuit judge denied another bail request Friday for the blogger who held a publicized standoff with city police this month that was broadcast live to thousands of listeners. Judge Lynn K. Stewart said Frank James MacArthur, also known locally as the Baltimore Spectator, posed a continuing threat to public safety and should remain jailed without bail. It was the third time that MacArthur, 37, who lives in the Waverly neighborhood, has been denied bail. MacArthur's attorney, Jill P. Carter, called the revocation a knee-jerk overreaction when many other suspects facing similar charges are often offered bail.
