Deputies arrested a Florida man for having sex with his live-in girlfriend without informing her that he was living with HIV, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Nathanial Faulk, 51, faces 10 charges, and if convicted, he could face up to 50 years in jail as well as $50,000 in fines. The girlfriend found out about Faulk’s status when she discovered his HIV meds. When she went to get an HIV test on Tuesday, she learned that in Florida it is a felony for an HIV-positive person to have sex without disclosing his or her status, regardless of whether the virus is transmitted. Her test results are unknown. Faulk told authorities she wanted to have unprotected sex.
