A 55-year-old black woman has been jailed after having sex with a 12-year-old boy while knowing she had the HIV virus
Investigators said that Debra Flowers Haggerty exposed the boy to a deadly weapon after he came into contact with her saliva during a sex act. Court documents filed in Houston, Texas, reveal that Haggerty is HIV positive. The assault took place at her sister's home. According to the arrest report, Haggerty unzipped her young victim's trousers and engaged in a sex act with him. The victim has been checked out by doctors and told that he has not contracted the HIV virus, but he said he is still fearful he might yet develop the illness. Haggerty, who has a grown up daughter, was charged with aggravated assault with a child. She is being held in jail on a bond of $30,000 and faces up to ten years behind bars if convicted.
