A man has been jailed for causing grievous bodily harm after infecting a woman with HIV during unprotected sex. Daniel Shaw, a 43-year-old from Leeds, failed to disclose his HIV-positive status to the victim. Later investigations revealed that he had not been taking his medication at the time.
The woman became aware of the potential risk when she stumbled upon a news article from October 2020. It revealed Shaw’s previous conviction related to HIV and other offenses.
Following this revelation, she became ill and received a diagnosis of the virus. Confronting Shaw, he vehemently denied his actions. He insisted that she had known about his condition and willingly accepted the risk.
Detective Chief Sarah Lambert of West Yorkshire Police commended the victim’s courage for coming forward and described the devastating impact of Shaw’s actions on her life.
The police department hopes that holding Shaw accountable through the criminal justice system will provide some reassurance to the victim as she strives to move forward.
This case presented significant challenges during the investigation. However, the police commit themselves to seeking justice for victims of such offenses.
By highlighting this landmark case, they aim to demonstrate their unwavering dedication to ensuring the well-being and safety of the community.
