Child abuser accused of infecting baby niece with HIV

David Richard Wilson was already a registered sex offender when he went to live with the parents of his 23-month-old niece.

When the toddler tested positive for HIV, herpes and chlamydia last November, the 33-year-old was the only other person in the house to test positive for HIV.

Because the baby girl had lived in various households during her infancy, police couldn’t prove Wilson was the one who had passed on the disease to her.

However a 14-year-old girl, who also tested positive for the same sexually transmitted infections, then came forward to claim that she’d been having sex with Wilson since she was 12.

Police were then able to link the two cases and formally charge Wilson, who was fully aware of the fact that he was HIV positive, yet continued to have unprotected sex with the teenager.

The young girl, who is pregnant with Wilson’s child, is now taking anti-viral medication, and is receiving prenatal care.

However, even more worryingly, the sergeant of Houston Police Department’s child sex crime unit has confirmed that there may be more young victims out there.

Wilson recently admitted to having sex with “numerous other people,” but he has yet to tell investigators how many more victims may be involved, their ages, names or dates.

Police in Houston, Texas are now urging people to come forward if they know anyone who has been in contact with him.
