Abstract

This article discusses the criminalization of HIV transmission and its implications. Part II of this article provides a general overview of the laws, while Part III is a detailed analysis of the specific statutes of the sixteen states with criminal transmission statutes relating to sexual activity. Part IV discusses the problem of vertical transmission of HIV as it relates to criminal transmission statutes. Finally, Part V of this article presents an alternative statutory proposal that could eliminate much of the vagueness and controversy surrounding the current laws.
