LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The arrest report has been released for a man accused of withholding his positive HIV status from a sexual partner.
According to his arrest report, James Redmond has known he is HIV positive since at least 2010. On Friday, his attorney provided Lee County Sheriff's deputies with a copy of his medical documentation. He turned himself in later that night.
Only WINK News was in court Saturday morning when James Redmond made his first appearance in front of a judge. He's accused of knowingly having sex without informing a partner he is HIV positive, which is a felony in the State of Florida.
On Saturday, we introduced you to the man pressing charges against Redmond. We're protecting his identity. He said he met Redmond online in May. But now, according to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, Redmond is admitting he's known for more than two years that he was HIV positive.
Redmond has bonded out of jail. The judge ordered Redmond to have no contact with the alleged victim. He's due back in court next month.
We've reached out to his attorney for comment, but so far, we haven't heard back.
