Man Charged With Infecting Second Woman With HIV

A Chattanooga, Tenn. man is facing charges of criminal exposure to HIV after it was discovered he infected his wife with the virus that causes AIDS. According to reports, 46-year-old James Hutchins met the woman in 2005 online and they were married about a year later. Despite his wife's instance that she's not been unfaithful during the course of her marriage, laboratory tests confirmed that she is HIV-positive -- and pregnant. She said after she found out about the results confronted with them last month, he left. So, she went to police. In 1999, James served six months in prison (and placed on five years probation) after he was found guilty of infecting another woman with HIV. She, too, found about her status when she went for a pregnancy test. If he's found guilty of this newest charge, which he probably will, James faces between three to six years in prison.
