Cody Wilson, the Austin, Texas, man who set off a national debate over plastic guns by posting plans online for making them with a 3D printer, has been charged with sexual assault, according to Austin police.
An arrest warrant issued Wednesday said a juvenile woman, under the age of 17, told investigators that a 30-year-old man paid her $500 to have sex with him in mid-August at an Austin hotel, NBC News reported.
She said she met the man online and exchanged text messages. In one of them, police say, he identified himself as Cody Wilson and said he was "a big deal." The two also exchanged explicit photos of each other, she told investigators.
