Oculus Head Arrested For Soliciting Sex From Cop Posing As Underage Girl

The head of computer vision at Oculus VR has been charged for communicating with a minor for immoral purposes. Upon his arrest, Katz told the officer that he was actually there to rescue the girl.

Dov Katz, head of the computer vision and machine learning group at Facebook-owned Oculus, has been charged in King County for attempted commercial sexual abuse of a minor. The 38-year-old tech exec allegedly attempted to contact what he believed to be was a 15-year-old girl for sex. The fictitious 15-year-old was actually an undercover police officer with the Tukwila Police Department, a city just south of Seattle.
