The Crown attorney will no longer seek a dangerous offender designation for a woman had unprotected sex with without revealing she is infected with the HIV virus, a court heard Tuesday.
Jennifer Murphy, 40, of no fixed address, was a possible candidate for the harsh sentence reserved for dangerous repeat criminals after she was recently found guilty of aggravated sexual assault.
Murphy had sexual intercourse without a condom in the back of a van with a man who gave her $20 in September 2011. During her trial court heard how Murphy hung around convenience stores in downtown Barrie and offered to have sex with men – sometimes for $20, sometimes for nothing. Three men testified no condom was used and they were terrified after they learned about Murphy’s HIV infection. The judge only convicted in one of the incidents.
