jail time or mental hospital for nondisclosure

Jan 29, 2012

Hello If an hiv person doesnt disclose their hiv before having sex would that hiv person go to jail with hard criminals like murders and rapest? What if the hiv person suffered from schizophenia would they be sent to a mental hospital to serve their time or would they go to jail or prison?

Thank you

Response from Dr. Wohl

Much depends on local laws. In many places such non-disclosure is a crime. DW
