Taiwan police arrest Texas 3D gun man accused of sex with minor

Cody Wilson

Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson was arrested at a hotel in Taipei City's Wanhua District at around 6pm local time in Taipei today, according to reports in Taiwanese outlets The Liberty Times (Chinese, Google Translate) and United Daily News (Chinese, Google Translate).

Wilson, at the center of a US legal battle over his plan to publish instructions for the manufacture of 3-D printed plastic guns, flew into Taiwan legally, the National Immigration Agency said on Friday.

The agency told BuzzFeed that because Wilson "lost a valid travel document, he no longer has a legal status to stay in Taiwan". He missed a scheduled flight back to the United States after leaving the country before police could interview him, Texas authorities said at a news conference Wednesday.

TAIPEI, Taiwan Authorities in Taiwan arrested the owner of a Texas company that sells plans to make untraceable 3-D printed guns who is wanted in the US over an accusation that he had sex with an underage girl and paid her $500 afterward, official media reported. He was charged on September 19 with sexual assault of a minor - a felony. In an affidavit first obtained by KVUE, the victim claimed that she had met Wilson on the website SugarDaddyMeet.com, and law enforcement officials had confirmed the existence of surveillance footage capturing Wilson and the victim checking into an Austin, Texas, hotel together on August 15.

Several commuters complained of severe headaches and at least 30 reported bleeding from their nose and ears. Only half of the people stranded at the airport got refreshments after repeatedly asking for it.

Wilson and the 16-year-old had sex at a hotel, and he paid her $500, according to Austin police. The unidentified adult claimed that the girl, her client, had engaged in sexual activity with an adult male after having met on SugarDaddyMeet.com. He later dropped her off at a Whataburger restaurant, she told authorities.

Wilson is identified in the affidavit as the owner of Austin-based Defense Distributed. It is expected to deport him to the U.S.to face those charges, which carry a potential 2 to 20 years in prison and $10,000 fine.

Police said they reviewed hotel surveillance footage "showing the victim and Wilson exiting an elevator onto the seventh floor".

The files could previously be downloaded for nothing, but a federal judge issued a nationwide injunction last month that blocked the posting of the blueprints online.
