South Dakota: Legislature Passes HIV Exposure Law

February 20, 2008

Under a measure passed unanimously by the state House of Representatives, persons convicted of intentionally exposing sex partners to HIV would have to register as sex offenders upon their release from prison. Two people have been convicted of such exposure under a state law that provides for prison sentences of up to 15 years, said Rep. Richard Engels (Hartford). The new measure will become law if signed by Gov. Mike Rounds.
