All of Canada Instructed to Regret Having Sex With Steven Paul Boone

Steven Paul Boone, a 29-year-old now behind bars in Ottawa, is charged with aggravated sexual assault after a man said he contracted an “infectious disease” after sleeping with Boone earlier this year. Police won’t say if it’s HIV, but they have taken the “extraordinary measure” of releasing Boone’s photo along with a plea that anyone who had sex with Boone — who was meeting dudes online — go get their business checked out. Not sure why this is so “extraordinary,” since mug shots are released all the time; they’re even posted online in Canadatown! But yeah, this certainly qualifies as a public health hazard.
