Cody Wilson Arrested in Taiwan

By Mason Mohon | @mohonofficial

Media outlet Taiwan News has reported that Cody Wilson, the 3-D gun printer from Austin, Texas, has been arrested.

When Cody signed a six-month lease for a studio in Taipei, the real estate agent noticed and reported it to the authorities. This happened after a Travis County judge ordered for him to be arrested after having sex with a 16-year-old girl and proceeding to pay her $500.

In Texas, where the age of consent is 17, this is statutory rape.

When Wilson became aware of the arrest order, he missed his flight back to the United States.

Local Austin officials, as well as federal officials, are still working to confirm the arrest.
