This Guy Deliberately Infected Ladies With HIV

A young man has gotten himself into serious trouble with the authorities after it was found out that he had infected his lovers with the dreaded HIV virus.

The man, identified as Antonio Reyes-Minana, has been found guilty and subsequently jailed for infecting two ladies he dated with HIV after keeping quiet about his infection.

According to Metro UK, Antonio denied two counts of grievous bodily harm but was convicted by a jury of deliberately infecting his partners.

Police said Nottingham Crown Court was told how, knowing he had been infected, Reyes-Minana had unprotected s*x with two other men separately in 2008 and 2012.

The victims found out during routine screening in 2012.

The 25-year-old, of Coppice Road in Nottingham, was then charged by Nottinghamshire Police in 2015 resulting in his conviction on Friday.

Appearing at city’s crown court for sentencing this Tuesday, July 15, 2017, he was jailed for seven years and told he would serve half behind bars and half on licence.

Speaking after the ruling, Detective Sergeant Andrew Hall, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "It has taken a long time to bring the case to court and we are pleased with the result today.

"The victims now have to live with a terminal illness. They gave evidence during the trial as Reyes-Minana had maintained his innocence but can at least find some comfort in knowing that their offender now has to take responsibility for what he’s done.

"We hope this raises awareness of this issue and how important it is to disclose such medical conditions."
