Friend of The Tatiana Show, Lyn Ulbricht, returns to catch up on the fight to free her son Ross from prison. With more than 340,000 signatures on the Change.org petition to grant him a pardon, Lyn is going hard for one of the last courses of action that could set Ross free after nearly eight years of incarceration.
Ross was convicted based on transactions that happened on the free trade platform, Silk Road. Each of the charges for which Ross was convicted is a non-violent offense. Yet, he is serving two life sentences plus 40 years in a maximum security prison.
Tatiana, Josh, and Lyn recap the corrupt investigation, the dubious charges, the incredible trial, ongoing international efforts to set Ross free, and the toll it has taken on him and his family.
