A British man has been jailed for life after being found guilty of deliberately trying to infect 10 men with HIV.
Prosecutors alleged that Daryll Rowe, 27, infected five men through unprotected sex, and attempted to infect several others by intentionally damaging condoms.
Rowe, who was diagnosed with HIV in 2015, met men on the gay dating app Grindr, prosecutors said.
After having sex with his partners, he would message some of the victims saying, “I have HIV LOL. Oops,” the BBC reported.
Christine Henson, the judge at his sentencing, said: “The messages you sent make it crystal clear you knew exactly what you were doing. As well as the physical offenses it is clear for the victims the psychological effects are immense … Many of those men were young men in their 20s at the time they had the misfortune to meet you.”
She continued, “I cannot see how and when you will no longer be a danger to gay men.”
