Man Arrested for Not Disclosing AIDS Infection

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Police in Athens have arrested a man on accusations he had sex with a woman without telling her he has AIDS.

Thirty-four-year-old Keyvin Shurrod Lyle was arrested Sunday and has been charged with felony reckless conduct.

Authorities say Lyle and the woman had sex three years ago. Police say the woman only recently learned she has AIDS and investigators traced back in time, in part, through interviews, to find that Lyle infected her in 2004.

Detectives took out a reckless conduct warrant against Lyle earlier this month.

Lyle was arrested Sunday when officers responded to a domestic disturbance involving Lyle at an apartment complex and found he was wanted.

Police say Lyle has also been charged with simple battery on a police officer and obstruction of a law enforcement officer because he resisted arrest and tried to punch an officer Sunday.

It is a felony in Georgia to have sex with someone without disclosing that one has HIV, which causes AIDS. The crime is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
