SEATTLE, WASHINGTON: A Twitch streamer is facing four felony counts — two counts of first-degree child rape and two counts of first-degree child molestation after being arrested. The arrest of Robert Paz, known as Prod1gyX on Twitch, came after his estranged wife accused him of molesting her two youngest sons. Bonny Paz has been married to Robert, who holds a Guinness World Record for his 'Rock Band 2' scores, for more than a decade and shares a daughter with him.

Bonny is also a mother to four boys from her earlier marriage. In October last year, Robert left their home after being involved in an extramarital affair. However, six months later, Bonny called Child Protective Services after she came to know about the accusations related to her kids and Robert. A Tweet by an Insider journalist Steven Asarch read, “Last week, Twitch streamer Prod1gyX was arrested for child rape and molestation. His two youngest stepsons made allegations against their father that resulted in his wife calling CPS. He is being held on $200,000 bail.” In another tweet, Asarch added: “Today, Paz was charged with two degrees of first-degree child rape and two counts of first-degree child molestation. According to court documents, the actions took place from 2009 to 2016. His Twitch channel has also apparently been banned or deactivated.” It has also been said that the "police conducted forensic interviews" with children after the complaint was made. Bonny was reportedly informed about Robert’s detention on March 25.

Meanwhile, regarding the charges that the accused is facing, the Washington State Legislature penal code defines child molestation in the first degree as "when the person has, or knowingly causes another person under the age of eighteen to have, sexual contact with another who is less than twelve years old and not married to the perpetrator and the perpetrator is at least thirty-six months older than the victim" and counts as a "grade-A felony." The Washington State Legislature penal code also brands first-degree rape of a child as a grade-A felony, which is “when the person has sexual intercourse with another who is less than twelve years old and not married to the perpetrator and the perpetrator is at least twenty-four months older than the victim.”



 

The arraignment of Robert, who rose to fame in 2009 when he became the Guinness Book of World Records holder for the highest aggregate score in 'Rock Band 2' with drums, has been scheduled for April 12 at the King County Courthouse. He has been active on Twitch since 2010, mostly donning a pair of bright-blue contact lenses.

Three years ago, he attracted controversy after claiming the "Pirate Legend" title in the seafaring pirate adventure game 'Sea of Thieves'. Several players questioned his win as he reportedly used his online following to let him level up faster, causing #NotMyPirateLegend to trend on social media.



 

Several people on Twitter have reacted to the arrest of Robert as one user wrote, “imagine everyone that followed/liked this dude and made him famous.” A second one commented, “Same guy that cheated for the first ever pirate legend in sea of thieves.” “YOOOO I never liked this guy, something about him always felt weird to me. Forgot he even existed,” another one added.
