Infamous online alt-right figure accused of sexual assault

Well-known alt-right figure Cody Wilson was arrested in September on allegations of sexual assault of a child. Wilson, 30, is known in Hawaii and around the country for his online sales of blueprints for 3D-printed guns as well as the creation of Hatreon, a site that he billed as a means for far-right figures to raise money for their efforts. The crowdfunding service raised over $8,000 each month for one prominent neo-Nazi website.

While his online political participation has driven his fame, it is also the source of the charges against him. According to police, Wilson used an online "sugar daddy" site to contact an underage girl. While her age has not been released, police have described her as "younger than 17." Wilson reportedly used an alias on the site and bragged about his fame or wealth. However, he later identified himself by name when communicating with the teen girl over text messages. He met the girl in person on Aug. 15 according to a police affidavit.

The police are in possession of surveillance footage that shows Wilson entering a hotel with the girl where he allegedly sexually assaulted her before paying $500. After his arrest in Taiwan, he was accused of second-degree felony sexual assault of a minor. Austin police said that they were working with Taiwanese authorities to return Wilson to the country; they said that he allegedly skipped his scheduled flight back to the U.S. after learning about the sexual assault charges that he would face.

For victims of sexual abuse and assault, the trauma caused by those responsible may not end with the arrest of the perpetrator. In far too many cases, the perpetrator may never be brought to justice through criminal charges. By working with an attorney to reach a settlement or a verdict, abuse survivors may seek accountability and closure.
