Former Ars Technica Peter Bright Not An Age Playing Vigilante US Closing Says

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 13 –  ArsTechnica writer Peter Bright took the witness stand on February 13 and called himself an "age player" and a Daddy. He said he prefers full bodied women with a lot of body hair - but denied that he actually likes children.

Inner City Press, which first reported Bright's presentment on the charges on May 23, here, started a Twitter thread about Peter Bright's matter of the fact statements about himself, here. More on Patreon here.

  The US Attorney's Office spokesman was in the courtroom, as well as other Federal Defenders beyond Amy Gallicchio, who conducted the direct examination complete with Bright's messages with the FBI agent, who Bright called Princess and then Liz.

  Judge P. Kevin Castel of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York let the jury go to lunch from 12:30 to 1:30 pm, then told the lawyers to return to discuss the jury charged at 1:15 pm. Inner City Press reported, It's coming to endgame, and it has.

  Assistant US Attorney Alexander Li in his closing statement emphasized to the jury the Peter Bright went to Duane Park with condoms to meet what he thought would be children. Li said Bright is not an age-playing vigilante trying to catch the FBI agent but rather a man attempted to have sex with children, with a lesson plan to teach about his foreskin.

   Many Federal Defenders were in the gallery for the closing arguments. Amy Gallicchio had argued, in writing, that "Mr. Bright actively engages in role-playing involving bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadomasochism, commonly referred to as BDSM. He is particularly interested in ageplay."  But what will the jury think of it? Watch this site.
  Yet more on Patreon here, including on the case's reference to... Justin Bieber.

The case is US v. Bright, 19-cr-521 (Castel).
