US: Florida woman guilty of mother-to-child HIV transmission

In what appears to be the first successful case of a criminal prosecution for mother-to-child transmission of HIV in the US (a Canadian woman was prosecuted under similar circumtances in 2006), a Florida woman has been sentenced to two years’ probation after she pleaded guilty to felony child neglect.
