NYer arrested, accused of faking HIV test results
Authorities said he later admitted to woman he was HIV positive
A New Yorker has been arrested on charges that he faked HIV test results so that a woman would have unprotected sex with him.
Department of Investigation Commissioner Rose Gill Hearn says X could spend up to 8 years in prison if convicted of reckless endangerment and possession of a forged instrument.
Authorities say the pair had unprotected sex eight to 10 times, from December 2007 to March 2008. When the woman later questioned the document’s authenticity, X allegedly admitted that it was fake and he was HIV positive.
Her medical status is not being made public.
