Missouri: Man Infected With HIV Accused of Not Informing Partners

March 5, 2003

A southwest Missouri man has been charged with failing to inform two women that he was HIV-positive before having sexual intercourse. Robert E. Michael, 32, of Springfield, was expected to appear Monday in Greene County court on two felony counts for reckless exposure to HIV. According to court records, Michael was told in February 2000 that he tested positive for HIV. Michael, who was charged in November, admitted to police that he had been informed of his obligation to notify his sexual partners of his positive status. Court records showed that he allegedly had protected intercourse with a woman, but did not tell her he was HIV-positive. In a police interview, Michael denied having sex with the woman. Michael was also charged with having unprotected sex with another woman the next night. He told police he informed the woman about his status the next morning. Michael was arrested in Texas in January and was returned to Greene County in February, where he was jailed on $250,000 bond.
