I have read and agree to the terms and conditions in the Posting Rules*

As someone who came very close to being charged with this sort of crime, this is an issue very close to my heart. I was assaulted by an agressive driver, who during his assault against me poked his finger in my mouth. I bit him causing a laceration. I was charged with assault, and even here in liberal Iowa City there were prosecutors who wanted me charged with Iowa's AIDS battery law. There was no intent, and no real risk of transmission--yet HIV was still allowed as an issue at trial.
