Life for hairdresser who infected lovers with HIV

Hairdresser jailed for life for deliberately infecting Brighton men with HIV

Hairdresser jailed for life for deliberately infecting Brighton men with HIV

Daryll Rowe pictured in his police mug shot after receiving a life sentence for deliberately infecting men with HIV.

During sentencing, the court heard statements from some of Rowe's victims about the impact contracting HIV had on their lives.

From there, he started meeting other men via the gay dating app Grindr.

One of his sexual partners said that Rowe told him, "You need to [bottom without a condom] if we're going to be together".

Maybe you have the fever.

When Rowe was convicted as guilty, many people celebrated.

Another victim says that because his parents died of AIDS, he had tried to avoid suffering from the same fate his entire life. In that same message, he told the victim he was "stupid" for not knowing. After having sex with his victims, he would send disturbing text messages under the impression they were infected with HIV. "This is impossible. I haven't had any unprotected sex".

"My belief is that criminalization is never helpful if the goal is HIV prevention", Hodson said. "It's like being hit by a bus - you feel like your life is over".

Rowe refused treatment from doctors.

Missouri Gov. Greitens Charged with Second Felony
The governor later filed requests for a restraining order against Hawley and a special prosecutor in The Mission Continues case. So he handed the evidence over to Gardner, who only had a few days to make a decision on whether to charge Greitens.

Rowe was arrested in February of 2016 after cops were contacted by a health clinic in Brighton that noticed similarities in how two people had contracted HIV. When he was finally apprehended, police found him with a backpack full of damaged condoms.

"Unfortunately for five of the men you met, your campaign was successful".

The "vegan hippie", who attempted to cure himself using freakish alternative therapies including drinking his own urine, met men at their homes for sex.

Prosecutors painted a picture of an aggressive young man who knew what he was doing, which persuaded Judge Christine Henson.

The judge added: "They describe living with a life sentence as a result of your cruel and senseless acts". Most of the victims were not aware that the person they were physically intimating with was HIV positive.

The judge told Rowe: "Given the facts of this case and your permissive predatory behaviour I can not see when you would no longer be a danger to gay men".

Daryll Rowe, 27, was sentenced at Brighton Crown Court today (April 18) and was told he would have to serve at least 10 years in prison before being considered for release. He was also sentenced for several drug-related charges. In the United States, a total of 67 laws in 33 states criminalize people living with HIV, often for activities that pose low or negligible risk of transmitting the virus.

While many anxious that this sentence would mean more stigma to those living with HIV, the National AIDS Trust Chief Executive Deborah Gold reminded the public that HIV-positive individuals should never be treated poorly because of this "deplorable" crime.

"Such intentional transmission is serious and deplorable, but this one-off case must be seen in context", she said, according to BuzzFeed.
