(99)  Knowingly infecting another with HIV a crime

On 23 February 2001 Stephen Kelly was found guilty in the High Court of Justiciary at Glasgow of culpable and reckless behaviour in having unprotected sexual intercourse with Anne Craig in the knowledge that he had been diagnosed as HIV-positive six months earlier and after telling her that he had tested negatively for the virus.  Ms Craig is now also HIV-positive.  Kelly had become HIV-positive as a result of “dirty” heroin needle-sharing with other prisoners while serving a sentence at Glenochil Prison.  He has been sentenced to a further five years’ imprisonment.
