3-D gun maker, Cody Wilson, has been charged with the sexual assault of a minor he met on SugarDaddyMeet.com.

Wilson, the founder of Defense Distributed,  gained notoriety in lieu of his three-year long legal fight with the federal government pertaining to publication of blueprints for 3-D printed guns. He sued the government in 2015 with claims they were violating his First Amendment right to free speech when they curtailed his effort to distribute the plans. Although the State Department nipped the lawsuit in the bud in June there is still much havoc surrounding the legalization of 3-D printed guns.

According to the Austin American- Statesman, police filed an arrest warrant for Wilson Wednesday in Travis County, TX. Allegedly, Wilson met up with a girl under the age of consent (17 years old). The girl claims he paid her for sex after meeting her on a dating site. Police confirmed this information with the help of hotel records and surveillance footage.

Statesman reported Wilson began talking to the girl, named “Sanjuro”, in August. He told the girl his name and proclaimed himself to be a “big deal.” Then they proceeded to exchange nudes.

Eventually the two met at a coffee shop on August 15th, then went to a hotel room. The girl later told a counselor from Child Protective Services that she had been paid $500 for sex with a 30-year-old man. Needless to say, the counselor was obligated to report this to the police.

“Sanjuro” cooperated with authorities in late August by helping identify Wilson on his SugarDaddyMeet profile.

The controversial 3-D gun maker is now facing second degree felony sexual assault charges.

    Not to be a conspiracy theorist or anything, but I find the timing quite strange.
