Overnight, Eyewitness News was in probable cause court as Wilson went before a judge.

Wilson, who created blueprints for 3D-printed guns, is accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl in Austin. Travis County had a warrant out for his arrest.

The teen told police Wilson paid her $500 after the encounter, then dropped her off at a Whataburger restaurant.

Earlier this year, Wilson made headlines for wanting to release 3-D gun blueprints over the internet through his Austin-based company.

Wilson's bond was set at $150,000.

It's unclear when he will make his way to Austin to face criminal charges.
