NOW ACCEPTING OVER 60 CRYPTOCURRENCIES

Authorities in King County, Washington accused the video game designer.

From VideoGamer.com:

Police confirmed they have been talking to the girl, identified by her initials AC, since May 2017, when she confirmed to having intercourse with Cliffe at least three times between April and June last year. Furthermore, AC, who was 16 at the time, stated that she was paid $300 per hour during these encounters.

However, speaking in a bail hearing on Friday (via Ars Technica), Cliffe's lawyer, Zachary Wagnild, claimed that his client was not aware of AC's age, though did confirm the two had sex.

‘Even if the facts are true as claimed, this was a meeting on an adult website,’ Wagnild said. ‘He was not looking for underage women and had no idea this woman was underage.’

In the summer of 2016, Counter Strike came under fire for promoting gambling on its website skins.

Counter Strike tournaments are now offered for betting on most online bookmaking sites.
