VOLUSIA COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – A Port Orange man with HIV was charged with having sex with multiple partners without informing them of his infection, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said.
Gentry Burns, 26, was charged after Sheriff’s Office detectives said they identified three women who engaged in sexual activity with him without knowing he was HIV positive.
The investigation started after an ex-girlfriend of Burns came forward to report she believed she contracted HIV from him when they dated in 2013.
“The victim had been reaching out to contact other women who were dating Burns in an attempt to warn them,” a news release said.
Detectives confirmed through subpoenaed medical records that Burns was diagnosed HIV positive in January 2014. Three victims confirmed they dated and had sex with him without knowing he was infected.
