AIDS is spread by acts, not by casual exposure. As AIDS spreads further, some are urging that those acts, including sexual acts, be treated as crimes. Indeed, two AIDS carriers have already been charged with crimes for risking sexual transmission of AIDS to others. In one case, the United States Army has court-martialed an infected soldier, Pfc. Adrian Morris, Jr., charging that when he had sex with two other soldiers, he committed the crime of “aggravated assault.” Aggravated assault requires use of a “dangerous weapon or other means of force likely to produce death or grievous bodily harm.” What was the “weapon” in his case? The sexually transmittable AIDS virus itself. In the other case, the Los Angeles district attorney has charged an AIDS carrier, Joseph Markowski, with attempted murder for selling his blood and for having sex with another man while infected.
