A black man has been accused of knowingly spreading HIV to his sexual partners
Police have booked Isiah Benford, 31, on 16 new charges. Police have linked him to at least 11 partners, saying that he knowingly infected them with HIV. "In my almost nine years, I haven't seen anything quite like this, to this degree allegedly," said Vigo County Prosecutor Terry Modesitt. "If you know that you're infected with the disease, you are to inform anyone else that you might have interaction or encounter with." Police say that three of Benford's sexual partners are willing to testify.
