Crypto Industry News:
A court in the United States ordered Christopher Bania, who recently confessed to drug distribution, to give away nearly 17 Bitcoins – worth approximately $ 150,000.
According to a Wisconsin court order, Bania will have to hand over “About 16,91880054 Bitcoin confiscated from the Local Bitcoins exchange account. Although this amount is approximately $ 153,100 on the day of publication, it is far less than the 124 Bitcoins that the court returns to the defendant, along with various other cryptocurrencies, and over $ 50,000 in cash confiscated from his place of residence after his arrest.
Although he was initially charged with money laundering, import of controlled substances and maintaining drug ownership, the Bania settlement of September 6 concerned a single charge for possession of controlled substances with the intention of distribution, which entails a maximum of 20 years in prison.
Bania acknowledges the sale of cannabis, cocaine, MDMA and LSD on the dark web. However, he denies the distribution of methamphetamine and heroin, which the authorities also found in his home.
The US Border Patrol initially opened an investigation into Bania’s proceedings after intercepting two parcels from Belgium containing MDMA. Investigators were able to trace the distribution networks used by the dealer thanks to his transaction notebooks, which court documents describe as “meticulous”.
