Another guy fleeing sex-related charges in the US for Taiwan?

A Texas man who has played a central role in making 3D-printed weapons available has been charged with sexually assaulting an underage girl.

A warrant was issued for Cody Wilson but he flew to Taiwan before he could be detained, police in Austin said.
A 16-year-old girl alleged she was paid $500 (£380) to have sex with Mr Wilson at an Austin hotel, they said.
Mr Wilson has been at the centre of a legal battle over publishing blueprints that instruct people on making a gun.

Mr Wilson has not yet commented on the case and no lawyer has yet issued a statement.

What are the allegations against Mr Wilson?

Austin Police Commander Troy Officer told a press briefing that a counsellor who had spoken to the girl informed police on 22 August that "that a juvenile female under the age of 17 had reported having sexual contact with a 30-year-old male".

The legal age of consent in Texas is 17.

Commander Officer said the girl met Mr Wilson through the website and had sex with him in a hotel on 15 August.

Police confirmed the girl's story through "videotape and interviews", he said.
The alleged crime is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Caught, packed and ready to be delivered to Uncle Sam in 3 days.

Well, they are not going to hand in one of their own tribe, even if he was just a Taiwanese descent. But furriner is more than OK.

Actually I am far more worried as to what that guy was doing here. Both his «businesses», meaning underage girls and guns, are quite unsavory.
