Man jailed after deliberately infecting former partners with HIV

A man has been jailed for infecting two former lovers with HIV after keeping quiet about having the virus.

Antonio Reyes-Minana had denied two counts of grievous bodily harm but was convicted by a jury of deliberately infecting his partners, police said.

Nottingham Crown Court was told how, knowing he had been infected, Reyes-Minana had unprotected sex with two other men separately in 2008 and 2012.

The victims found out during routine screening in 2012.

Further tests revealed the same virus was present in Reyes-Minana – a sometime male model – as was in his two victims, and it was likely to have happened during their relationships together.

The 25-year-old, of Coppice Road in Nottingham, was then charged by Nottinghamshire Police in 2015 resulting in his conviction.

Appearing at the city’s crown court for sentencing, he was jailed for seven years and told he would serve half behind bars and half on licence.
