Sean Strub: HIV Panic Again Trumps Justice, EducationA local PA newspaper reports that a 25-year-old woman from the central part of the stae was charged with sexual assault, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person — because she allegedly did not disclose her HIV status to a sexual partner. The article doesn’t note whether her sex partner acquired HIV, but did violate her privacy by printing her name and the town she lives, thereby outing her HIV status to her community. This type of irresponsible reportage leads to a conviction in the court of public opinion before the woman even goes to trial.

In this recent blog, POZ founder Sean Strub writes:
"Criminalization is increasingly recognized as a significant obstacle to overcoming the HIV epidemic, particularly because it deters people from getting tested for HIV.  If you don’t know you have HIV, you can’t be prosecuted on a criminalization charge."
