The Crown is seeking a dangerous offender label for the Windsor businessman, who pleaded guilty last spring to 15 counts of aggravated sexual assault for engaging in sexual relations without telling his partners of his HIV-positive status. Five of those 15 women were infected with the virus that can lead to AIDS.
...the court heard one of the conditions of any long-term supervision order likely would be a requirement the offender "immediately" report to his parole officer any new platonic or intimate relationship...
He said that person would be contacted by a parole officer and informed of the offender's parole status and given details of his offences. Whilsmith said privacy legislation prevents parole officers from informing anyone of an offender's medical status, such as being HIV-positive.
Privacy considerations aside, defence lawyer Andrew Bradie said his client would prefer a condition of having to divulge his HIV status to potential sex partners if it meant he didn't have to spend the rest of his life behind bars.
