HIV-positive man admits dangerous sexual contact

July 18, 2017 | By More

A man who met men through social media and had consensual unprotected sex with them, has admitted that he did not tell them he was HIV positive.

Johnny Lachlin Benjamin Lumsden, 26, was charged with endangering the health of three men by criminal nuisance, and a representative charge of supplying methamphetamine.

Lumsden had known of his diagnosis since May 2016, but between August and October he met up with the three victims at his home, the Christchurch District Court was told.

When asked by all three victims, he told each of them that he was a “clean”.

When police obtained Lumsden’s cell phone they found messages showing that between October and November Lumsden was methamphetamine dealing, and also offering to inject one of the buyers with the drug. He told the person that he had studied nursing and knew how to do it safely.

Judge Jane Farish refused Lumsden’s bail application and remanded him in custody for sentencing on September 7.
