American actor Charlie Sheen has given an interview revealing he was diagnosed with the AIDS virus 4 years ago.
He claims to have slept with 1000's of women including porn stars, admits he has had unprotected sex since the diagnosis, but claims it's impossible he has infected anyone else.

Not sure how that one works.

Evidence that the person had knowledge of his or her HIV-positive status, without additional evidence, shall not be sufficient to prove specific intent.”

The Fox newsreel sort of said everything we have here.

I liked the summing up though...Its very difficult to think someone is using their disease for the greater good when he could have allegedly put so many people at risk.

Exactly.  Specific intent to infect is an element that must be proven, above and beyond the knowledge and non-disclosure.  Note that it is purposefully written as conjunctive ("and"), rather than disjunctive ("or").  How do you do that?
