Man who knowingly infected woman with HIV is jailed for three years

A man who knowingly infected his then-partner with HIV has been extradited to the UK and jailed but only after 12 years of legal anguish from his victim who is now living with the incurable disease and 'forever marred by his actions'.

At Chester Crown Court yesterday, Jamaican-born Jermaine Scott was jailed for three years for the incident after pleading guilty to grievous bodily harm.

Scott had been diagnosed with the virus in 2005 and had been prescribed medicine to control the condition and prevent it spreading to others.

MailOnline reported that the victim had previously been in a relationship with Scott which the pair struck up again 2009 – four years after his diagnosis.

However, Scott did not regularly take his tablets or tell his victim he was carrying the virus and proceeded to have unprotected sex with her – infecting her with HIV.
