There are two separate cases of HIV-positive men being accused of exposing their unknowing partners, one of which ended in a guilty verdict.
Missouri college student Michael Johnson, 22, was charged with five counts of knowingly transmitting the disease in October, and since his arrest police have reportedly discovered multiple videos of him having unprotected sex.
Prosecutors say Johnson - who is a former Lindenwood University student - can be seen sleeping with 31 “unidentified people” in videos made over a four-month span, and they also believe these partners were unaware of Johnson’s HIV status.
Meanwhile, another man in Georgia was convicted of knowingly exposing a woman to HIV. Though Craig Lamar Davis, 43, was adamant that the women he slept with were very much aware of his status, a jury found him guilty of a felony that could find him in prison for up to 20 years.
Davis is also being charged for a similar case in a different Georgia county.
