State Supreme Court to Hear Criminal Case of Iowa Man With HIV

The Iowa Supreme Court will hear the HIV criminalization case of Nick Rhoades, the Des Moines Register reports. After the Iowa Court of Appeals affirmed a lower court ruling denying him an Application for Post-Conviction Relief, Rhoades filed an appeal to the state high court. Rhoades was sentenced to the maximum of 25 years in prison and lifetime registration as a sex offender after having a one-time sexual encounter with Adam Plendl during which they used a condom and no HIV was transmitted. After Plendl was told by a friend that Rhoades might have HIV, he contacted the police, who arrested Rhoades in September 2008. On the advice of his counsel, Rhoades pled guilty. In 2009, he was convicted of intentionally exposing Plendl to HIV. Several months later, his prison sentence was suspended, and he was placed on supervised probation for five years. In 2011, Rhoades filed an Application for Post-Conviction Relief, arguing that he received poor counsel. He was denied the application, which prompted these appeals.
