Judge: HIV-Positive New York Man Belongs in Jail Until Trial

May 20, 2002

An HIV-positive Queens man will be jailed while awaiting trial on charges involving sex with a 15-year-old girl he met on the Internet, a federal judge in Florida ruled. The case dates to Dec. 17, when police in Pinellas Park, Fla. received a report that a teenage girl had been the victim of a sexual assault there. The alleged victim showed police e-mails from the man who picked her up and took her to a hotel where they had sex. A surprise raid on Jose Blas's home in New York revealed a paper with the girl's name on it and the name of the hotel, court records showed. The agents also learned Blas was taking HIV medication.
