These days, when you engage in unprotected sex with someone, you are literally taking your life into your own hands. There are a number of STD’s out there and not everybody is aware of their status. However, there are people who are aware of their infection and selfishly go around having sex with unsuspecting people, infecting them. One such case happened recently, when a police officer spread the HIV virus to women over a span of seven years.
Ervans Saintclair, an officer of the Green Acres police department in West Palm Beach, FL has known that he was HIV positive since 2007. However, he has been lying to women for years about this fact. His status came to light last year when a woman who he had been dating for a year and had unprotected sex with multiple times learned of his infection. He told her that he had just learned that he had HIV. However, he was caught in the lie when another woman came forward with paperwork showing that Saintclair knew of his status years in advance.
That woman was unable to press charges due to the Statute of Limitations, but she brought a list to police of women that Saintclair had sex with. Detectives made a call to Saintclair during the case, in which he bragged about all of the women he bedded, but lied when asked if he had HIV.
In paperwork dating to 2007, Saintclair was notified of his status and was repeatedly warned not to have sex with anybody. A warning has been issued county-wide asking women who have been in sexual contact with Saintclair to come forward. So far, eight have come forward and more expected in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, he impregnated one of the women. It expected that Saintclair may have spread the HIV virus beyond the county and even in other states.
