Cody Wilson sentenced to seven years of probation in sexual assault case

News

The former head of Defense Distributed Cody Wilson, has been reportedly been sentenced to seven years of probation in a plea deal over sexually assaulting an underage girl. 

The Associated Press reported today that Wilson will register as a sex offender and serve 475 hours of community service. He also won’t be able to own a gun while on probation, and he will pay a $1,200 fine and $4,840 in restitution to the victim.

Wilson was originally charged with second-degree sexual assault, but he pleaded guilty in August to the lesser offense of injury to a child. Prosecutors reportedly met extensively with the victim and her parents before making the decision.

Despite this, according to Ars Technica, a judge asserted that there is sufficient evidence to find you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt for more than injury to a child.

Wilson’s attorney, Joseph Turner, told press that it was a fair resolution for everyone.
