David Mangum a Missouri man has been arraigned on the charges of willfully infecting over 300 sexual partners with the HIV virus a disease associated with weakening the immune system and potentially resulting in death. He had unprotected sex with these people spanning two States, Kansas and Texas because he feared his advances would be rejected if he had told his sexual partners about his true status. Russell Oliver, Stoddard County prosecuting Attorney in a statement on Thursday said;
"The situation is a serious health concern. There are potentially 300 or more unknown victims that have been unknowingly exposed to HIV in this region. If any of those 300 individuals contracted the virus, all sexual partners of those victims have potentially been exposed".
Mangum who worked in a grocery store in Dexter, Missouri was arrested after his former partner learned in July that he has HIV positive. The man told police that Mangum had lied about his status.
