Louisiana Man Accused of Exposing Woman to HIV

January 16, 2003

James Davis, 32, of Montegut, La., was arrested early Tuesday at his home and taken to the parish jail where he was charged with a single count of intentionally exposing a female sex partner to HIV. On Wednesday, Davis was in jail in lieu of $500,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 19. Sheriff's Deputy Dave LeBoeuf said Davis has AIDS, but the 22-year-old woman he is accused of infecting has not developed the disease. The woman was pregnant when she and Davis had sex, officials said. Authorities said that if the child's blood tests come back positive, Davis may be charged with a second count of intentional exposure to HIV.
