LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A second person filed a complaint with the Lee County Sheriff's Office against a Fort Myers man, accused of having sex and not telling his partners he's HIV positive. James Redmond is out of jail, after being arrested Friday night.
The second alleged victim came forward after WINK News broke the story of Redmond's arrest for the first complaint. In the new report, the second person told detectives he asked Redmond numerous times if he was HIV positive, and he denied it every time.
After the first victim came forward, Redmond's attorney provided Sheriff's deputies with medical documentation, showing Redmond first tested positive in 2010.
WINK News is not identifying this most recent victim. We're calling him "Tom," and we've disguised his voice. "Tom" told us he has not tested positive for HIV and is continuing to get tested.
Florida law states if Redmond broke the law multiple times, he could face up to 30 years in prison.
