Article on challenged consent misses something…

An HIV-positive Athens man who was arrested in November for having unprotected sex with a woman without telling her he was infected claimed that she knew about his condition prior to having sex, according to a search warrant affidavit filed this week in Clarke County Superior Court.

…Because of medical privacy laws, the arrest warrant did not reveal much information, other than to say that Billings “did … intentionally have unprotected sexual intercourse on multiple occasions with the victim without disclosing the fact that he was HIV positive.”

Well, if the woman is HIV-negative then this becomes somewhat a non-story. Yes, everyone should have all the information that is feasibly important for a sexual encounter, but if the HIV theory is all a sham it is of little consequence. And if the woman is HIV+ you cannot be certain that it was because of the accused or because of any sexual encounter.
