So this is the face of HIV? Most women would look at this young man and not have a problem with sleeping with him. He’s attractive, he is employed, but he also has some problems. He is vindictive and deliberately slept with many women and didn’t inform them of his disease. He looks like a player. But what does it really take for women these days? Nothing much. These men find it easy to have sex with women at this time because sex is so easy to come by. Imagine this…9 women left themselves open to receive this disease and now a portion of them are now carriers. They will pass this disease onto someone else, and that will make it more wide spread. It is a cycle that repeats itself.
The law requires full disclosure, but who is monitoring it? No one. These women put themselves in the line of fire when they choose not to protect themselves. Should we feel sorry for them? They are old enough, they should have common sense enough to know better. Condoms take up their own little section of the stores these days. No one can say, “I didn’t know.” Those days are old. There are some circumstances where it’s not a persons fault if they get infected.
Example: A man meets a woman. He begins to date her, and they eventually fall in love and start a family. She is HIV positive but doesn’t tell him. How is that his fault? Well he could have, during their dating process requested a test to be done. As they do offer couple testing. This is avoided because some people don’t want to come off as “being picky or particular”. But what’s worse, being embarrassed now, or being sick later? If he/she loves and respects you, they will be more than happy to oblige your request.
These women who slept with him were careless and more than likely were not on his list for starting a family. They were nothing more than booty calls, nothing more than sex partners. In that case, you definitely need to protect yourself. What is the proof that he/she is being exclusive to you? The women he slept with probably knew about each other too. More than likely, they were typically competing for the affections of him, but he ultimately got the last laugh. Read the story below…
LEBANON — A Cincinnati man who is HIV positive and was arrested for having sex with women in Hamilton County faces similar charges in Warren County.
A county grand jury Friday handed down nine charges of felonious assault against Andre P. Davis, 29. The indictments were made public on Monday.
Davis is accused of having sex nine times with four women in Warren County between December 2010 through January 2011, and knowing he was a carrier of the HIV virus but did not tell the women.
Ohio law requires people who know they are HIV positive to disclose that information to their partners.
Davis, a former professional wrestler known as the “Gangsta of Love,” had worked at the Macy’s customer calling center in Deerfield Twp.
Prosecutor David Fornshell said Davis faces 72 years in prison if convicted on the Warren County crimes.
“Three of the four victims knew him from the Macy’s calling center in Deerfield Twp. while the other victim met him separately,” Fornshell said.
He said Davis will be arraigned in Warren County Common Pleas Court at a yet to be determined date.
He is already under indictment by a Hamilton County grand jury on 15 counts of felonious assault, a second-degree felony, for having sex with 12 women there and not disclosing that he was HIV positive.
Davis was arrested by Cincinnati police in early April and has been in held at the Hamilton County Justice Center in lieu of a $275,000 cash bond. His next court date is today in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.
Update: Davis was sentenced to 32 years in prison
