A St. Charles man with HIV was arrested after investigators found 32 videos of different individuals participating in various sex acts with the suspect.
Most of the victims were clueless Michael Johnson had HIV.
Local St. Louis KMOV reported:
Prosecutors tell News 4 they now know more than 30 people could have gotten HIV from a former student at Lindenwood University who allegedly knew he had the deadly disease. He is accused of knowingly giving it to others.
In October, Michael Johnson, 22, was charged with exposing sexual partners to HIV. Police later discovered multiple videos of Johnson having unprotected sex.
They believe those partners were unaware Johnson was HIV positive and that they were being videotaped.
The startling details were revealed after hidden camera sex tapes were uncovered, according to prosecutors.
“On that laptop were 32 videos engaged in sexual acts with Mr. Johnson,” said Tim Lohmar, St. Charles County prosecutor.
Lohmar said Johnson can be seen with 31 unidentified people in videos taken over four months. Most of the videos were shot on the campus of Lindenwood University in St. Charles. Johnson has already been charged with five counts of knowingly transmitting the disease.
“It’s safe to safe that numerous of those videos were taken inside his dorm room; we know that because we recognize the furniture.”
