Troy Officer said Wilson met the girl Aug. 15 at a coffee shop after communicating with her on SugarDaddyMeet.com, took her to a hotel and paid her $500 for sex, CNN reported.
The age of consent in Texas is 17.
According to CNA, Taiwan’s state news agency, Wilson was arrested at a hotel in Taipei on Friday. Wilson’s passport has been revoked, and Taiwanese authorities plan to deport him to the United States to face the charge, according to Huffington Post.
