Iowa Man Gets 25 Years For Not Telling Sex Partner He Had HIV

“[Nick Clayton] Rhoades, 34, pleaded guilty to failing to disclose his HIV status prior to having sex with a Cedar Falls man June 26. The two men exchanged messages in an Internet chat room before meeting at the victim’s home. Although the contact was consensual, the victim, who has since tested negative for HIV, said Rhoades denied he had any sexually transmitted infections. The charge against Rhoades stands because he failed to disclose his HIV status prior to having sex with the man.” [WCFcourier.com]
