Oklahoma Man With HIV Faces 7 Felony Charges, $1M Bail

A 23-year-old Oklahoma man is facing seven felony charges for allegedly transmitting HIV to his wife and at least one other woman, reports. The charges against Chris Sylvie include assault and battery with a deadly weapon and having sex with a 14-year-old girl. Nicole Sylvie, his wife, claims he has known his HIV-positive status since 2005. She says she learned she was HIV positive last October, when tests showed she was also pregnant with his child. His bail is $1 million.

Well he will go away for life because of the 14 year old. I hope she doesn't sero-convert. Once again it's a repressive southern state that would rather preach the wrath of God than give sex ed to teenagers. Any women in the OK. state legislature should introduce a bill making it mandatory for all men from 12 years on up to get the HPV vaccine. If you don't and your wife or girlfriend develops cervical cancer then the unvaccinated would be charged with assault 'n battery with a deadly weapon too
