News - Cody Wilson actually did nothing wrong

Well this is certainly something. Cody Wilson of Defense Distributed is back and agreed to a plea deal - link: Washington Beacon and Arstechnica.
Gun-rights activist Cody Wilson told the Washington Free Beacon he will be returning to Defense Distributed, a company that manufactures machines that make gun parts, after striking a plea deal in his sex-crime case

Amid this legal controversy, Wilson was accused of paying $500 to a girl under the age of 17 for sex through a website in August 2018.

In September 2019, the judge in Wilson's case accepted a plea deal which reduced the charge to injury to a child. Under the plea deal, first published by Ars Technica, Wilson was sentenced to no prison time but must register as a sex offender, attend sex offender therapy, pay a $1,200 fine, and refrain from contacting the victim, among other conditions.
Actually there is more to it than that:
After his arrest on charges of sexual assault against a minor in September 2018, Wilson had made a plea deal with the state ahead of his initial court appearance last month. Now it's official: Wilson will serve seven years of deferred adjudication probation and register as a sex offender. He'll pay a $1,200 fine and $4,840 in restitution to the victim. He must complete 475 hours of community service and continue to attend sex offender therapy. And during this probation period, his keystrokes will be monitored, he will not be allowed to possess firearms, he cannot drink alcohol or use narcotics, and he must inform the court if he has children during that time. (His former company, Defense Distributed and the associated Ghost Gunner, Inc., had formally cut ties long ago.)
The above was from Arstechnica.  From the mouth of the whore-mother:
This is an impossible task. Somehow I am supposed to make a statement that fully explains your actions, but my truth is over a year ago, I always hold in my hand, the minute you paid my daughter for what you did to her...
The investigation period was terrifying. Reading who you are and what you believe in created a very real and reasonable fear for our family and everyone in it. So I would take pictures of her every time she left my car in the months leading up to the case just in case I had to ID what she was last wearing...

Our daily life was shattered, but she never wavered from the truth. Once she knew who you are and what you did, she never wavered. She remembers the gun you put in her hands and the feeling of your skin. But you ran, despite the publicity you have always been seeking from your fans and followers, you ran. You hid in a foreign airport and only came back because you were made to. She stood up in a public forum despite talk of conspiracies and setups...

I pray that you will not be killed, especially that you will not be killed by a gun... The truth is you are now hiding behind the laws of the country you mocked for years. But the biggest truth is my daughter is strong, vibrant, and has a beautiful future. And I speak this truth in front of you because that's the most important truth in all of this.
 Why is the victim's mother speaking out?  The alleged "victim" is an adult now - old enough to smoke, join the military and buy a rifle in the state of Texas.  Originally she willingly went on a site for adults and lied about her age so she could whore herself for money online.  The whole thing is a setup.
"Obviously I regret it happening," Wilson said. "It was a massive distraction. But, in order to feel guilty, you have to have a criminal mind. You have to know you were committing a crime."

Wilson insisted that despite laws that prohibit felons and others from owning firearms and previous reports to the contrary, he would still be able to possess them.

"I'm definitely not a prohibited person," he said. "I haven't taken a conviction. There's no felony record. Travis County doesn't treat me as having lost my voting or my firearms rights."

"Even if I wasn't allowed to own firearms, I could still run this company," he added. "This company deals with software and components that aren't firearms."
 Not sure how true that statement about not being a felon is, but if so, good for him.  The guy is a self-described anarchist so maybe the statement (along with the above comment about not feeling guilty and this case being a distracting waste of time) is just simply sort of a 'fuck you' to The Man and the whore and her mother.

Meanwhile, Defense Distributed released a bizarre, art short featuring their desktop CNC gun-making machine: The Ghost Gunner 3.
