St. Louis Mardi Gras Couple Guilty of HIV Felony Seek New Trial

A St. Louis couple found guilty of knowingly exposing another person to HIV, a felony that carries a possible 15-year prison term, are seeking a new trial, St. Louis Today reports. Kerry Lynn Hanson and his girlfriend, Angela Marie Niemczyk, were found guilty after allegedly engaging in a foursome with an 18-year-old woman and her boyfriend at a Mardi Gras party in St. Louis. Neither Hanson nor Niemczyk disclosed that Hanson was HIV positive at the time of the encounter. Days later, the 18-year-old woman learned of Hanson’s status and was subsequently tested. She has never tested positive for HIV. Hanson and Niemczyk have said that Hanson and the woman never actually had sex and the charges are false.
