eg. Can you get STD from giving your partner a BJ?

What are the legal implications of knowingly passing on STD’s?

Asked by on September 29, 2013

If someone knows they have an STD such as herpes and they do not let the people they are sleeping with know and they contract it. What are the rights of the people who contract it without knowing the person who they slept with was infected?

I have heard of HIV cases, but it has to be proven that the other person knew.

If someone did that to me, I would have one of my bfs make sure they never did it to anyone else.

If you can’t get the law to do anything, pay someone to try and pull him/her and then either castrate them, or ruin their looks so they can never pull again.

more serious std’s like hiv or syphilis or gonorrhea if not announced can get you a felony charge if the person gets or tests hiv positive then develops full blown AIDS it becomes murder charge. i have a cousin serving a life sentence for this.

That is willful intent. Contact your local health clinic and ask them to suggest a lawyer who specializes in punitive health issues. In your case, try to get attorney’s fees and life long health care concerning complications and continued complications from herpes… GO HUGE… and NAIL THIS LOSER’S BUTT!

Only for the HIV AIDS virus – the others are a not life threatening. And herpes can stay dormant in your system for years – you may never be sure where you got it from.

Search for HIV felony and see what you get – no reference to other STDs: http://www.thebody.com/content/art10668.html

Depending on the type of STD it can be a felony. HIV/AIDS has a 100% death rate so far (you will die from it one day). If you cause the death of another person on purpose it can be per-meditated murder. IF this happen to you go to the doctors get medical proof and then get a lawyer.
