Infamous and very controversial 3-D printed gun promoter, Cody Wilson, 30, has just been charged with child sexual assault. The shocking event came after an underage girl claimed she had sex with the American crypto-anarchist after meeting him online.

According to a New York Times report, the man first got in touch with the 16-year-old girl through the website SugarDaddyMeet.com. There, he told the teen he was a “big deal” in the country, prompting her to agree to meet him in a Texas parking lot.

Wilson then drove the girl to a nearby hotel, where they allegedly had sex and he paid her $500 in cash.

In the days after the alleged intercourse, Wilson and then girl exchanged explicit photos via text.

Eventually, however, the teen told a counselor about the event. The person then alerted police, who confirmed the girl’s story using surveillance footage from the parking lot.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Wilson recently gained fame when he announced his plan to upload blueprints for 3-D printed guns onto his company, Defense Distributed’s website. After he was blocked from doing so by 19 states, he said that he would instead mail flash drives containing the files to whomever wished to buy them.

Of course, Wilson’s gun production scheme has become an issue of national safety and brought to light the issue of gun-control and free speech.

As of now, Wilson has not addressed the sexual assault claims made against him, and police still have a warrant out for his arrest. According to the New York Times, the free-market anarchist missed a flight back to the United States from Taipei, Taiwan, in recent days, and officials are having trouble tracking him down.
