Boone County woman charged with knowingly exposing man to HIV
A Kingdom City woman is charged in Boone County with knowingly exposing a man to HIV.
Courts issued a warrant Friday for C.X, 43, on a single count of recklessly risking infection of another with HIV while knowingly infected, a class B felony. X was not reported in custody at press time and bond has not been set.
In a probable cause affidavit, Columbia Police Officer Jason Grillo wrote the victim said he met X in October 2019 through a dating application and a meeting was arranged. He said he asked her before the encounter took place if she had any sexually transmitted diseases and X allegedly replied she did not.
″(Victim) stated X advised him ‘absolutely not’ multiple times,” Grillo wrote.
After the two had sex, X allegedly told the victim she has AIDS, according to the affidavit. The next day the victim went to the doctor and was prescribed medication and told he could have contracted the virus. Physicians told him it could be days or years before he tests positive or shows symptoms.
The victim told Grillo he would not have had sex with X had he known, the affidavit reads. Grillo then called X and she allegedly admitted to having AIDS.
