EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) _ An HIV-infected man already convicted in
Douglas County of knowingly exposing women to the virus, has been
convicted in a second county.
A judge found Robert Richardson II of Lawrence guilty Tuesday in
Lyon County District Court of two counts of exposing another person
to a life-threatening communicable disease.
Richardson had waived his right to a jury trial and instead had
requested a trial before Judge Jeffry Larson. Sentencing was scheduled for Jan. 16.
Richardson was sentenced in November 2006 to 32 months in prison
after being convicted in Douglas County on four counts of HIV
exposure involving three women.
