HIV Infector On The Run

Have you seen this man? His name’s Mark James and he’s the first Brit in history to be found guilty of knowingly infecting someone with HIV. Had he shown up to court, James would have been sentenced to 40 months in prison. Unfortunately, James decided to take his show on the road and has been missing ever since.

At the time, James had been in a long-term relationship, but failed to disclose the fact that he contracted HIV in 2004. (Nice, huh?) His lover soon tested positive and went to the police. Inspector Detective Mark Sunman says:

This crime was carried out when he was in a long-term relationship – but the longer that he is out there, the more likely it is that he will start another relationship. Does he present a risk to the public? The answer is yes.

While it’s unlikely James has made it over here to The States, all you international folk should keep an eye out, because more than a few people want to have some words with him.
