Illinois: Woman Pleads Guilty in HIV Case

February 4, 2003

After pleading guilty to attempted criminal transmission of HIV to an Elmhurst man, a Barrington woman was sentenced to time in jail that she had already served. Held since Sept. 12, Pamela Sohn, 47, was released Monday from the DuPage County Jail, according to her attorney, Timothy Martin. Elmhurst police arrested Sohn last September after receiving a call from a local resident. After meeting the man at a local bar, Sohn went with him to his home for intimate contact. As she was leaving, the man claimed she had stolen $80 from him, and he detained her until police arrived. "Our investigation indicated details that weakened the state's case resulting in this plea bargain to a lesser crime," said Martin. The man has tested negative for HIV. Judge Michael Burke also placed Sohn on probation for two years and ordered her to undergo counseling.
