3 victims of HIV+ paedophile test negative

A 36-year-old man who abused three little boys despite being HIV positive was jailed for 14 years today.

…Matthew Dunford, prosecuting, said the boys have had to undergo a course of treatment because the defendant was HIV positive but to date all had been negative.

For the boys to have been offered preventive treatment we can strongly infer that the accused had unprotected intercourse with them. Regardless of the heinousness of the crimes, why is it not newsworthy alone that there was no HIV transmission at all?
