Sex, Lies and HIV: When What You Don’t Tell Your Partner Is a Crime

Laws that criminalize HIV in this country are so askew, one man got a 25-year prison sentence after having sex using a condom, another when his viral load was undetectible; both had close to zero chance of passing HIV, but that's not really what these outdated laws punish.
