Johanson Little, a Chicago man who failed to inform his ex-girlfriend of his HIV-positive condition, could face felony charges, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
According to Assistant State Attorney Dan Griffin, Little and the unnamed woman dated between June 2012 and 2013. In February, she tested positive for the virus as well, Griffin added.
The woman says she wasn’t intimate with anyone else during her relationship with Little. She eventually found out from his family that his former wife died of AIDS.
Little had told her she died of ovarian cancer.
Little admitted to hiding his status after his ex confronted him, Griffin said. The Chicago man has lived with the disease since 2003. Judge James Brown held Little on $750,000 bail. He is charged with criminal transmission of HIV, which is a Class two felony.
