Overview

Peter Bright's Child Solicitation Arrest refers to the arrest of Ars Technica technology reporter Peter Bright, known on Twitter as @DrPizza, who was charged with one count of attempted enticement of a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity in late May 2019.

Background

In the complaint, the agent states they had told Bright they were a 7-year-old daughter and a 9-year-old son, and began having sexually explicit conversations on WhatsApp.
