Rapist may have HIV from Greater Manchester victim

Posted on 09/03/2013 7:25:26 PM PDT by Orange1998

Richard Thomas was sentenced to five years and four months after admitting raping the woman at her home in Leigh, Greater Manchester.

He knew she was ill but did not know she had HIV and collapsed when police told him, Liverpool Crown Court heard.

Thomas, 27, of Sandringham Drive, Leigh, raped the woman after she had taken a sleeping tablet.

'His own fault'

He said he had been drinking heavily and taken drugs, and could not recall the attack but believed the woman, the court heard.

Thomas had let himself into the house uninvited in the middle of the night and the woman, who had taken a sleeping tablet, awoke to find him raping her.

Harry Pepper, prosecuting, said: "She froze and no words were exchanged. He pulled up his shorts and left."

Judge Mark Brown described the crime as "dreadful".

Thomas is due to find out whether he has contracted HIV later in the week.

His barrister, Virginia Hayton, said: "It is his own fault, if he had not committed this offence he would not have placed himself in this position."

Five measly years for rape?

Why don't they just throw a parade for him and call it a day?

Yes, the lighter boys had all of us terrified, and “AIDS is everybody’s problem,” It is VERY difficult to contract HIV, as a male, through vaginal sex. Reference transmission rates studies cited in “The Myth of Heterosexual AIDS.”

He isn’t going to get AIDs from vaginal sex, it would be a super fluke.

It would be sweet if he had contracted it, but it's doubtful.

Heterosexually-transmitted AIDS was a myth promulgated by the homosexual mafia, much like the AGW myth promulgated by the Fabian socialists.

What numbers do you have for female to male vaginal transmission in the United States?

5 chances in 10,000 if the woman is infected with AIDs, is a super fluke.

It would be a super fluke for this guy to get AIDs.

AIDS is easily transmitted by hetero sex. The anal variety will transmit it just as well between hetero partners as between homo partners. It is also probably more easily transmitted by violent vaginal rape than by the consensual variety.

Apologies if overly graphic.

Only for the woman. The AIDS virus requires an open wound to gain entry into the body. Violent vaginal sex can cause open wounds. Unless a man already has a lesion on his penis (from Gonorrhea, for instance) the chances of infection are almost nil.

There is a very high rate of heterosexual AIDS in Africa because so many of the men carry other STDs like Gonorrhea.

I’m convinced that if all of us were really on the Starship Enterprise the Muslims would be the Klingons.
