Yeah, repost.

It seems too convenient. I'll wait to see how clear the "video" is of him and the car that looks just like the car his business owns are.

The article I posted in the banning plans thread said in most cases, the girl looks older, in this case if anything she looks younger than 16.

I have a friend that still had problems buying booze at 25 cause she looked 12. Didn't change the fact that she was 25.

If she was on a 18+ website, and told him she was 18+ its reasonable for him to think she is 18+

It's not like you can cut them in half and count the rings. That would probably be frowned upon anyway.

Yes, friend looks young, ID checked.

It's up to you to check their ID. Anyone can be on any website, it just takes a charge card.

If you met at a bar where they check IDs coming in, you might be able to convince a jury (old LA Law case found not guilty of with a minor, but guilty of rape because she said no).

Same with the guys that get railroaded for taking a girl home from a 18+ club only to find out they are 16.
Agreed. Shes not a victim. If anything shes the predator (in those situations).

I would say there is about a zero chance probability that a chick on an escort site wouldn't have a fake id.

What makes me mad is that the girl could do anything she wanted to fool some guy into thinking she was older than she is, and it will ALWAYS be the guys fault because she fooled him. They will never lay even an ounce of blame at her feet.

It says they exchanged nude photos before meeting. Is she being charged with distribution of child porn? I really doubt it. She knowingly sent it. He unknowingly received it.

How about her parents? Shouldn't they be charged with abandonment or child endangerment or something? You can't have it both ways- she's either responsible for her own actions, or she's not, and her parents are...

Of course, but it is illegal to have sex with a minor. There's no play in that.

Did you have sex with her? Yes? Guilty. Get the shit kicked out of you everyday prison.

Your only defense then is you believed she was of age, had no reason to believe otherwise and hope the prosecutor/jury takes that into consideration.

I really think that should play a huge part in the trial. Did he break the law? yeah, would he have broken the law if he knew the truth that she hid from him? maybe, maybe not.

Obviously this is all dependent on him actually not knowing she was underage. If its proven that he knew, well he is screwed.

Say you were talking to a girl online and she says she will pick you up in her brand new Mercedes cause she wants to show it off. Halfway through the night you get pulled over cause its stolen. How do you avoid that situation?

You are riding/driving a stolen vehicle. Should you be sent to prison for it? Should you demand to see the registration to every car you get into to make sure its not stolen?

Society cant continue if there isn't at least a basic level of trust as the base.

My initial thoughts are that he knew. It looks to me like he ran or was the trip to Taiwan (where those kinda things happen) a coincidence?

75 is a legal speed in many places. If you want to claim you didn't know the speed limit was not 75, and can show that the reason you didn't know that was because someone else defaced, destroyed, or falsified the last speed limit sign, You would have a very strong case to have the ticket dismissed.

Granted that probably wouldn't work if you were in a school zone.

My take is it is awfully convenient, the people he's pissed off and him being out of town and all.

Or maybe he is just that stupid given Occam's razor. Personally, I'd be driving around town 5mph under the speed limit & 10 second stops at stop signs with those crosshairs on my back. Sure as shit not hiring escorts for "activities" let alone underage looking ones (seriously, wtf? ). Hell, with the fall of backpage, I'd be highly paranoid of any dating site let alone those catering to escorts.

The initial article I read said she was 17, but I wouldn’t doubt they changed it if it didn’t suit their motives. Fleeing looks pretty bad though.

Age of consent in Texas is 17, which means he shouldn’t be facing a statutory rape/assault charge. They seem to be hanging this case on the fact that they exchanged nude photos, for which the age is 18.

Go figure, you can screw a 17 year old, but if she sends you a topless pic you can go to prison.

I suppose they could also charge him with soliciting prostitution, but I’d expect the fact that they used that website to meet should absolve him of that. I’m sure there’s a big disclaimer that it’s not for sex and any $ exchanged is just a gift or for “companionship time.”

So the guy from Austin PD in the article is named Troy Officer?

Does that make him Officer Officer?

Just struck me as oddly appropriate for his line of work. Nothing to add otherwise.

No conspiracy theories yet that he was setup? Does seem pretty convenient? Not to say he’s a douche for doing whatever with the 16 year old but then again meeting on a 18+ dating website...agree with @Subybaja might as well hold the website and parents liable as well.

reports are he was arrested in Taiwan

Breaking: 3D-printed gun maker Cody Wilson arrested, Taiwanese media reporting

Cody Wilson, the Austin man behind the legal fight in support of guns made on 3D printers, holds a news conference on Aug. 28 announcing he was offering gun blueprints for sale. The U.S. Marshals are asking for the public’s help in finding him after he was charged with sexually assaulting a 16-year-old who authorities say he met online.

BREAKING: 3D-printed gun maker Cody Wilson arrested, Taiwanese media reporting

Cody Wilson, the Austin man behind 3D-printed guns who has been accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl, has been arrested in Taiwan, according to media outlet Taiwan News.

The publication reported that a real estate agent alerted police in the Taiwanese capital of Taipei that Wilson had signed a six-month lease for a studio after seeing news reports that the 30-year-old was wanted for sexual assault in Texas.

Wilson has been charged with sexual assault after he was accused of paying a 16-year-old girl for sex in August after meeting her on SugarDaddyMeet.com, according to court documents filed in Travis County on Wednesday.

An international search for Wilson began Wednesday after police found he missed a scheduled flight back to the United States from Taipei.

Austin police have said it is unclear why Wilson was in Taiwan.

Federal and local officials in Austin said they could not immediately confirm the arrest but are working to gain more information.

Statesman reporter Tony Plohetski contributed to this article.


Cody Wilson, 30. (U.S. Marshals Service)

It's 16 in a lot of states, here in Oklahoma included. I've seen a few 16 year olds that looked damn good and if I were single and they were willing..hell yeah.


So long as I didn't have to have a conversation with them

I bet if he was in Utah or Oklahoma, she would, so conveniently be 15.

The FBI and ATF have a hard on for this guy, I wouldnt be surprised if they had survelince and wire taps, some legal some not. Im sure they knew about the meeting with the girl, not saying they set him up but let the crime happen so they can hammer his ass. How many sex ofenders are out there and how many of them have Federal Marshalls chasing them in Asia. Seems like alot for a guy that fucked a girl that lied about here age and might be of legal age.

Of course. She and a guy that looks like him. You'd have to keep those 2 quiet, and, well, a 16 year old is out of the media spotlight. Reports don't say they looked at his phone records, just hers. In one message, on her phone, he used his real name. His account photo matched his driver's license photo and the car looked like a car his company owns.

Do the dic picks include his face, how grainy are the surveillance footage.
