Woman Faces Jail Time For Not Telling Boyfriend She Has HIV
How selfish of this woman…
For more than nine months, a former Cobb County woman allegedly kept a big secret from her boyfriend, according to police. She was HIV positive. When her boyfriend found her prescription medication used to treat the virus, he confronted her, according to an arrest warrant obtained by the AJC. Angela London, 41, previously of Marietta, admitted to being infected, according to police.
Then, she moved to Texas. But she could be on her way back to Georgia to face a felony charge of reckless conduct for not informing the victim that she was HIV positive before having sex, according to police.
State law requires that HIV-infected people disclose their infection status to another person prior to sexual activity or before sharing injection drug needles, according to the Georgia Department of Public Health.
If arrested and returned to Cobb County, London would be jailed on $100,000 bond, her arrest warrant states. No information was available if the former boyfriend has been tested for HIV.
London was the victim’s girlfriend from October until late June, when the boyfriend, whose name was not released, found the medication Zidovudine belonging to London, according to police.
“The victim did not know the accused was HIV positive,” a Marietta police officer stated in the warrant. “The victim confronted the accused about being infected with HIV. She admitted to being infected and left for Texas.”
Investigators believe London is now living in Cedar Hill, Texas, about 15 miles outside of Dallas. Address records show London has lived most of her adult life in Texas.
