(December 23, 2016)- Cape Coral Police Detectives have arrested a man for knowingly having sex with a person and failing to notify them of his HIV status.
This was a follow up arrest by Cape Coral Police Detectives. On February 16, 2016, the victim contacted the Cape Coral Police Department and reported that their ex-boyfriend, Rondan Keith, was in jail for stalking and texting that he had HIV and that he intentionally had unprotected sex with them so they could get infected. The victim stated that they never knew that Keith had HIV while in the relationship and wanted to press charges.
Detectives interviewed Keith at the Lee County Jail and learned that Keith was incarcerated from 1999 through 2002 in Illinois and subpoenaed his medical records. The medical records showed that Keith had knowledge of his condition and was being treated for HIV during his whole time incarcerated in Illinois. Detectives charged Keith, who was still incarcerated at the Lee County Jail, with Crimes Against Person-HIV Infected Person Having Sex Without Informing Partner.
Detectives have concerns that there are other victims in the community and would like to speak with them. Please contact Detective Lebid at (239) 242-3717.
