Richard Thomas was sentenced to five years for raping a woman he knew, but that may be the least of his worries. The woman has HIV and Thomas might very well have it now as well. He is currently sitting jail, hanging on the edge of his seat, until his medical results arrive which could reveal some devastating news.
Thomas let himself into his victim’s home during the night as she slept. She awoke to find him raping her and was helpless in stopping the attack. Thomas claims he was under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time, though even his lawyer has little sympathy for him, as he stated in the courtroom during his trial:
“It is his own fault. If he had not committed this offense he would not have placed himself in this position.”
Well, when your own lawyer tells the court you’re getting what you deserve, I suppose there’s no hope for you.
