Sexual predator with hiv arrested
A Jacksonville man and sexual predator is being held without bond in the Clay County Jail, accused of violating the terms of his court order and knowingly spreading HIV to at least one victim.
X, 47, is charged with failing to disclose his HIV positive status and failing to register a permanent address, both felonies, according to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office.
X is identified by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement as a sexual predator, but allegedly moved to Clay County without ever informing the state or registering a residence in the area, according to an arrest report.
The report, which is heavily redacted, suggests X was sexually involved with a woman starting in March without ever telling her he was HIV positive. The pair had met on Craiglist, a bulletin board website, before becoming friends, the victim told investigators.
On March 4, they had sex at the victim’s home, according to the report. It wasn’t until after the pair had sex “numerous times” that the victim learned X was HIV positive following his reported diagnosis in 1998, the report said.
