Man charged with not revealing HIV status


CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) _ A convicted sex offender from the
Caldwell area has been charged with having unprotected sex with
women without telling them he is HIV-positive.
Canyon County Prosecutor Bryan Taylor says 50-year-old Roland
Rivera was arrested Thursday on a charge of ``transfer of bodily
fluid which may contain the HIV virus.''
Court records say Rivera acknowledged to investigators with a
sex offender task force that he had unprotected sexual contact with
women without disclosing he has tested positive for the human
immunodeficiency virus.
Taylor has a 2009 conviction for felony indecent exposure.
Canyon County officials are urging anyone who may have had
sexual contact with Rivera to seek medical attention.
