Double standard for women with HIV...
She only gets house arrest...a man in her position would get years in prison...
A woman with HIV was sentenced to two years house arrest for having sex with a man and not disclosing her positive status.Hat tip: Jeremy.
Robin St. Clair, 28, who pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault, cried in court yesterday when she was told she would be registered as a sex offender for life and would be made to provide a DNA sample.
Prior to going into the Finch Ave. courtroom, St. Clair was all giggles and was ogling a picture of shirtless men in the Toronto Sun.
She didn't speak in court, and at times looked bored and picked her teeth.
Justice Paul Taylor said the victim "won't find favour with my decision."
"No sentence could restore (his) confidence in fellow human beings."
The man -- who can't be named because of a publication ban -- met St. Clair in March, 2007, at a Toronto house and asked St. Clair for oral sex.
St. Clair said no but agreed to have intercourse with a condom.
The man had intercourse with St. Clair twice and on the second occasion the condom ripped.
That was when St. Clair told the man she was HIV-positive, even though in 2004 she was issued with a so-called "Section-22" from public health officials that details her responsibility to disclose her status.
