A Minneapolis man was found guilty of transmitting HIV despite informing his partner he was positive. Say what? Disclosing your status to your partner and then engaging in consensual sex can still lead to jail time? Horrifyingly, yes. In this case, the Minnesota jury convicted the man on a statute that criminalizes the “transfer of blood and sperm…except as deemed necessary for medical research.” Our ruling: We need a massive overhaul of HIV criminalization laws.
