HIV man strikes again: unprotected sex with 15-year-old

A 20 year-old man with HIV from Linköping has been remanded in custody for having unprotected sex with a 15-year-old girl.

The man has previously been imprisoned for having intercourse with seven woman who were not aware he was infected.

The pair had sex with mutual consent on September 11 but the man did not inform the girl he had the HIV virus, nor did they use a condom.

He told the girl of his condition sometime after they had been intimate.

”He admits what he has done,” prosecutor Britt-Louise Viklund told the Östgöta Correspondenten newspaper. ”He blames the fact he was under the influence of alcohol.”

The girl has since taken a HIV test but must wait three months until final results show whether she has been infected or not.

In January 2008 the man was sentenced to two years imprisonment for having unprotected sex with seven women between the ages of 17 and 25.

None of these women were infected and he was forced to pay 40,000 Swedish crowns in damages to each of them.

He was released early in January this year, eight months before his sentence was complete.

‘Absolutely incredible’ no-one was seriously injured in Linköping explosion: police

Investigation into Friday's blast, which injured around 20, is set to be extensive.

“It is absolutely incredible that nobody was seriously injured,” police press spokesperson Björn Öberg said.

Police have now limited street closures to the most severely-damaged sites.

“Assistance from NOA will arrive today and we are moving to a phase of pure investigation. It is a comprehensive job to put together all the leads and tip-offs we have had, so it will be a large investigation,” Öberg said.

No arrests have yet been made in connection with the explosion.

“We do not want to commit ourselves to a particular hypothesis,” Öberg said.

The explosion appears to have occurred just outside the apartment building which received the most damage.

That worse casualties did not result is down to pure luck, according to the police spokesperson.

Around 20 people received mild injuries in the explosion on Friday morning, with three being taken to the city’s University Hospital.

“They have splinters and cuts. Two patients are still here,” Region Östergötland medical officer Kim Berg said to press on Friday.

Either gas or explosives could have caused the blast, although explosives appear to be the most likely, Henric Östmark of the Swedish Defence Forces’ (Totalförsvaret) research unit told Corren.

“Most bomb explosions in Sweden in recent times have been smaller (than this),” Östmark said.

“We have to go quite far back in time to find something in Sweden with an explosion of this size,” he added.

Police said on Friday that they do not believe the explosion was linked to terror, but were not ruling anything out.
