The American influencer blogger was sentenced to 14 years in prison because of an armed attack to steal a domain that he could not buy from the owner because of the high cost. Now let's do it in order.
Who is an influencer?
An influencer is a person whose opinion is significant for a certain audience: a blogger on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube or any other social network that interacts with his audience. At the same time, the audience listens and trusts the influencer, which is important.
Let's put it in simple terms: this is a blogger with a large and trusting audience.
And what is really popular?
On one of Rossi Loratio Adams II’s Instagram pages, there are about one and a half million subscribers, but the content is absolutely not permissible: the blogger and his subscribers posted photos and videos with harassment to campus students.

Adams decided it was time to expand and launch his own site, but the domain was already taken. And the owner was ready to sell it for $ 20,000. Adams, of course, did not like the amount, and he decided to take the domain by force.
How was Adams going to steal the domain?
The blogger persuaded his brother Sherman Hopkins to break into the house of Eaton Dayo (the owner of the domain), threaten him and force him to give the domain name. Hopkins armed himself with a pistol, a stun gun and even put on pantyhose for disguise before breaking into the house.
Then, like in a movie: Hopkins knocks the door and shoots Dayo's leg, the same grabs a gun and takes several retaliatory shots. As a result, Hopkins was sentenced to 20 years in prison back in 2017, when this all happened, and the turn came to Adams only now.
What is the moral? Read more books and come up with other names for sites, do not persuade anyone to steal and do not break prices if you have registered a domain for resale.
