According to authorities, an Oklahoma City man is accused of knowingly spreading HIV, OKC Fox reports.
Earnest Lacour is being held at the Oklahoma County Jail and is charged with three felony counts of spreading an infectious disease.
Authorities state that a woman first took to social media and claimed the accused of knowingly spreading the disease. As a result, more women came forward with the same claim.
Police say they obtained Lacour’s records that revealed he was diagnosed with HIV in 2019.
One woman who was diagnosed with HIV went to visit a doctor with Lacour.
According to court documents, one of the women who tested positive for HIV went to see a doctor with Lacour. The woman told police she knew Lacour already knew he was HIV positive when she found out he was given HIV medications that day without having his blood tested.
The 30-year-old is being held on a $500,000 bond.
