Arkansas is the state where I was convicted of Knowingly Exposing Another to HIV. I practiced safe sex and the victim is not HIV+. This is par for the course in Arkansas. Arkansas lives in an antiquated belief that HIV is a death sentence. Even when the kids do return to school they will be stigmatized. What's even sadder is that the Arkansas Legislature will not retract the criminalization laws and this incident is a clear example of why people are afraid to open up about their HIV status.

There should be punitive damages for this. Someone needs to pay and whomever made the decision to exclude the students should be disciplined and pay damages as well. Discriminatory practices need to always be addressed without mercy.
