Canadian faces life in prison...for having AIDS

Absent an actual AIDS infection in the supposed victims, this strikes me as more a thought crime than an actual crime. Aggravated Sexual Assault? Please... Reckless endangerment, probably. Aggravated stupidity? Certainly. Worth potentially life in prison? No way.

A former linebacker in the Canadian Football League who is HIV-positive was found guilty of aggravated sexual assault for having unprotected sex with two unwitting women.

Trevis Smith, 30, was accused of not telling the women that he carried the virus that causes AIDS and of lying to one of them who even pressed him about persistent rumors of his malady[...]

[...]Neither of the women has tested positive for HIV, said reports
