Man who tried to buy 'chemical weapons' with bitcoin in US is jailed for 12 years

 


Jason William Siesser, 46, who lives in the US state of Missouri, admitted to authorities that he twice tried to get "dimethyl mercury" through a platform where illegal products can be purchased and connected to a special scanner, the Independent reported.


Siesser first sought to pay for dimethyl Mercury in 2018 with Bitcoin, which is described as a "chemical weapon" when it is not used for scientific research purposes.


The U.S. Justice Department said Siesser, whose first attempt to buy two 10-milliliter chemicals failed, tried to pay for three 10-milliliter chemicals orders with $ 150 worth of Bitcoin a month later.


The ministry said it was possible that 300 people had been killed with the chemicals Siesser wanted to order.


At a hearing in U.S. District Court, Siesser was sentenced to 12 years in prison without the possibility of parole.


Only a few drops of dimethyl mercury, which is highly toxic, can be fatal.
