Owner of 3D-printed gun company accused of sex with minor

Jorge Sanhueza Lyon  KUT

Cody Wilson, owner of Defense Distributed company, holds a 3D printed gun, called the "Liberator", in his factory in Austin, Texas on August 1, 2018.

Wilson had not been arrested as of Wednesday morning, according to Austin police spokeswoman Stephanie Jacksis, who declined to provide additional information. Wilson meant to post instructions online for using 3D printers to make plastic guns, but a lawsuit deterred his plans.

A Texas gun rights activist whose quest to spread the availability of 3D printed guns sparked a legal battle, has been charged with sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl and appears to have gone on the run.

Eventually the girl and "Sanjuro" arranged to meet at Bennu coffee shop in Austin on August 15, before departing in a black Ford Edge sport vehicle to travel to the Archer Hotel. Texas police are now working with national and global law enforcement partners to locate the gun rights advocate, whose last known location was Taipei, Taiwan.

Wilson appears to have missed a scheduled flight back to the U.S., Officer said. She said Wilson then gave her five $100 bills.

Officer said it was unclear why Wilson went to Taiwan, but he added that a friend of the 16-year-old alleged victim told Wilson that he was under investigation before he left.

Investigators compared the profile photos used on the SugarDaddyMeet.com account to Wilson's driver's license photo, and determined that they were of the same person, the affidavit said. "Afterward, she said he paid her $500".

The pair initially communicated over the site, with Wilson using the pseudonym Sanjuro and suggesting he was a "big deal", before revealing his true identity, the documents say.

Wilson allegedly met the victim on SugarDaddyMeet, a dating platform that matches older men with younger women.

He has been in a three-year legal battle with the State Department, which in 2015 accused him of violating arms export laws.

Taiwan and the U.S.do not have an extradition treaty but cooperate extensively on legal and security matters.

Mr. Wilson has since started selling the files via flash drives and through the mail, saying the judge's order bars him only from posting the files online. His criminal defense lawyer couldn't immediately be identified.

After the charges became public on Wednesday, organizers of a Second Amendment conference set for the coming weekend said Wilson wouldn't be speaking at the event.

They join New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal and Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer, who were named in a previous complaint.
