Australian HIV-positive man convicted of infecting othersJuly 31st, 2008 - 7:47 pm ICT by IANS
Sydney, July 31 (DPA) An HIV positive Australian put on “conversion parties” where he had unprotected sex to deliberately infect his gay partners with the virus, a Melbourne court was told Thursday. Michael Neal, 49, was found guilty of trying to infect others with HIV and is to be sentenced later this month.
Neal was told by health authorities to practice safe sex and tell partners of his HIV status after being diagnosed in 2000.
He ignored the advice, organising what he called “conversion parties” where some guests were not aware they were being infected.
He bragged about infecting 75 people and told one person he “gets off” on it, the court was told.
