Oh I CANT believe that!! Especially if there is MEDICAL documentation to PROVE that she had been to his doctors and KNEW he was positive. You should have him request a copy of his medical records for that office. (I understand he is incarcerated, so perhaps YOU can pick up a release of information and have him sign it.....and sign it so that it can be released to YOU). What state do you live in anyway? It doesnt seem right that there is documentation in medical records, but yet HE is being blamed as if she didnt know. It depends on where you live as well.....I dont know how some states handle it even if the person DID know he had hiv...and still had unprotected sex? Some things dont seem right to me, such as....if one is aware of a status.....it doesnt seem right that they could go to jail because BOTH parties participated in unprotected sex! (I mean in the state of Mass...its not even required that you MUST tell your status, EVEN if you have sex without protection OR disclosure)...it is probably one of the only states that EVERYONES privacy...is just that....THEIR PRIVACY!!

I know it wont be easy, and maybe may not make much of a difference (depending on where you live), but can you try to do the medical record request? It doesn seem right that he get that much of a punishment if she knew. What the heck kind of lawyer did he have....TO NOT insist that the documentation may help!!

I'm sorry your friend is going thru this.....The law is so weird and varies from state to state in regards to disclosure.

get back to me soon.

love and prayers,
debbie
