In the first such decision in Australian legal history, an HIV positive bloke who allegedly had unsafe sex with three others was found guilty of 10 counts of reckless endangerment and sentenced to eight years behind bars. Two of his mates got HIV, and DNA tests found the same strain in all three men. “They were effectively sentenced to death by his actions,” pronounced the Down-Under Crown prosecutor. The PWA, a 52-year-old bi businessman, admitted to withholding his HIV status from his partners, and claimed that in the 10 years since his diagnosis, he received no information on HIV prevention. Australia is widely viewed as one of the world’s biggest prevention success stories.
