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.

Well she must have suspected. She'd been treating people with Ebola FFS.

She was working in a third world country where people. especially people not used to such conditions often get ill with many diseases, not just ebola..

Come off it. Quite frankly, the whole thing was absurd - it's such a risky business anyway.

The only absurd thing here is you comparing a nurse who went over to a third world country to try to save lives, to a sex mad morally depraved arsehole who thought he could play Russian roulette with peoples lives when he slept with them without divulging the fact he was HIV.

To be really honest and very simply put, I think it's a definite sign of bad characters to deliberately not tell someone you have a potentially infectious deadly disease - come on Rags!

If my daughter was full of cold, but felt well and asked me to go to nursery, I'd respect other mothers and their children and not send her.
It's kind of like a on unwritten rule that you wouldn't let your child cough and splutter all over other children.

What Sheen did was despicable actually; he wilfully had unprotected sex knowing he was infected.

The intention of the nurse is not the issue. I don't suppose Charlie Sheen intended to pass on the HIV virus either. If he was morally depraved, so were the prostitutes and the people who blackmailed him.

Quite honestly, I think that if none of these women are HIV positive, they should thank their lucky stars and move on. Lessons have been learnt I'm sure.

But he says that the women knew he was infected. We shall see. At the moment it's his word against their word. Two of his exes have tested negative, so they should move on IMO.

Loads of people go out with colds and infect other people, but we don't sue them. Sometimes I think they should be sued - especially when they have a cold a couple of weeks before Christmas and infect others a few days beforehand. Laughing

There was allegedly one prostitute who found his medication and blackmailed him. I don't suppose she stopped sleeping with other guys after that either.

I'm sure lessons have been learned.... probably not by him though if the self pitying interview he gave is   anything to go by.
Hopefully no one else  has been infected by his behaviour....I still think he had better start saving up for all the law suits that will surely come his way though.

It was a good interview, I thought the interviewer asked all the right questions.

The American court system is often centred around multi million dollar settlements.....if/when he is sued my opinion matters not a jot.

Like I said - it's the country where you can sue for something that didn't actually happen. Fancy putting yourself through a court case when you don't even have HIV. Still, I expect it might be worth it to them financially - if he's got any money left that is.

I must say he's looking pretty good considering. At least he can show people that it's not necessarily a death sentence these days.

Hundreds of thousands of people have proved that though....without all the unsavoury stuff that he has brought with him.

Yes he looks OK dressed.

Anyway, he said he was first aware of it when he got a bad migraine and went into hospital. I wonder if he contracted it shortly before that - people with HIV do sometimes get ill when they are first infected. No doubt there will panic amongst people who suddenly develop migraine headaches.

What this sorry saga may do (hopefully) is once more bring home to people that they should protect themselves if they sleep about.
I remember when the AIDS virus was first in the news ....I knew of a couple of people who would not sleep with a new partner till they had been tested and had documentation to prove they were clear.

Sheen may have gone with women but the women go with their spouses, boyfriends and every Tom, Dick, Aala and Abdul these days.

That's the point though...some women are saying he didn't tell them.
According to the press Sheen didn't confine his encounters to women, he also slept with men.

I've been reading about Bree Olson, one of his ex girlfriends. She's saying that now when people hear her name, they'll think of HIV. It might help if she wasn't giving interviews about not being HIV positive.

She says that her more recent exes think she's given them HIV, and she's getting nasty messages on Twitter. I don't think he can be blamed for that really.

She says he never told her, but he wasn't diagnosed until after they broke up apparently. He should have told her when he found out really, but I don't think she can sue him for not doing so, and I don't think she's planning to do so.

HAD she been infected by him she could have passed it on to God knows who, all exes should be told.

It might actually do some good. Another famous person who's now willing to talk about it might help - a heterosexual one too. I did read he thinks he got it from a transsexual, which I presume means a male person, so perhaps it won't help.

Protecting themselves ain't that easy, you can get infected by saliva, gonna regret saying that.

But the point is IF you are with someone who is infected you take all the precautions you can.
If you don't know a person is infected you cant.

Yes, but if he wasn't aware that he was infected, he couldn't be sued for not telling her at the time. It would have been nice of him to tell her later so she could tested, but she wouldn't be able to sue him.

You should anyway really. You can't tell if someone has HIV by looking at them.

He is talking about it because he knew it was going to come out.

I think he has done about as much good to help HIV/AIDS sufferers as the other famous degenerate Rock Hudson...who carried on sleeping around after he was diagnosed.

Now if someone who lived a more normal lifestyle were to come out and say they were HIV....that imo would help a lot of people.

In California, where he lives, you can't be prosecuted for infecting another unless it can be proved you intended the infection.  Very difficult to prove unless there is an admission--of the intent, not the fact.

Blackmail is a criminal offense, related to extortion.  Those who blackmailed him will probably face prosecution.

I think you are right....he cant be sued for not telling her something he didn't know himself.

After they had split and he found out, he should have told her obviously....I doubt whether he could be sued for that though.

However just say she HAD been infected and went on to unknowingly infect others.....it could become even more complicated.

It's kind of like a on unwritten rule that you wouldn't let your child cough and splutter all over other children.

What Sheen did was despicable actually; he wilfully had unprotected sex knowing he was infected.

Which is not criminal.

No exactly, that's why people should be open.

And why people should be careful.

In California, where he lives, you can't be prosecuted for infecting another unless it can be proved you intended the infection.  Very difficult to prove unless there is an admission--of the intent, not the fact.

Blackmail is a criminal offense, related to extortion.  Those who blackmailed him will probably face prosecution.

In California can you be sued for not telling a sexual partner you are infected?

Yes, but if he wasn't aware that he was infected, he couldn't be sued for not telling her at the time. It would have been nice of him to tell her later so she could tested, but she wouldn't be able to sue him.

I think you are right....he cant be sued for not telling her something he didn't know himself.

After they had split and he found out, he should have told her obviously....I doubt whether he could be sued for that though.

However just say she HAD been infected and went on to unknowingly infect others.....it could become even more complicated.

Natalie Kenly also says he never told her, but he probably wasn't diagnosed until they broke up either. He was with her at the same time he was with Bree Olson - I think.

Brett Rossi, who was engaged to him later says he didn't tell her.

He seems to like ladies who appear in "adult" films.

So far, he doesn't appear to have infected anyone. Can you be sued there for not telling someone about your HIV status, regardless of whether or not they get infected?

Yes, civil liability depends upon what duty is owed.  That in turn depends on the facts.

In criminal law, the duty is specified in a statute.

Innocent as in doesn't "deserve" HIV?

Thanks. In the interview it was said in 35 states it's against the law not to inform....so presumably in the others it's not against the law.

You can be sued for anything, it depends upon the facts. Civil liability has a flexible theory of duty. Criminal liability must involve intent to infect.

The states are all over the map with what the law says. That's why I specified California...and after all, it's where he lives.

So knowing you are infected and having unprotected sex without informing your partner you are infected .....whether or not the person is infected or not after the encounter....could that be described as 'criminal intent'?

I would guess, No. I think the act is criminal, regardless of the consequences. The difficult part is showing intent...it can't be inferred. That's why I say it practically has to be an admission. Anyway, something that shows that's why you were doing the fookin' with that particular person.

Exposing someone to HIV is a felony only if intent to infect that individual can be proven, as stated in California Health and Safety Code Section 120291: “Any person who exposes another to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) by engaging in unprotected sexual activity when the infected person knows at the time of the unprotected sex that he or she is infected with HIV, has not disclosed his or her HIV-positive status, and acts with the specific intent to infect the other person with HIV, is guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for three, five, or eight years. Evidence that the person had knowledge of his or her HIV-positive status, without additional evidence, shall not be sufficient to prove specific intent.”

Almost impossible then...one persons word against another unless an admission is forthcoming, which I imagine is as rare as hens teeth..
