The Smoking Gun has discovered a story about an HIV positive Air Force Sergeant who has been charged with aggravated assault, indecent acts, obstructing justice, and adultery as well other charges for not disclosing his medical status or using condoms.
As first reported by TSG, Sergeant David Gutierrez, 43, met a “multitude” of sex partners at “swinger” parties and through adult web sites. Gutierrez, stationed at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, is a 20-year Air Force veteran who has been in military custody since early last month.
Gutierrez was charged yesterday with a variety of counts, including aggravated assault, indecent acts, obstructing justice, and adultery. He was also accused in a charge sheet, a copy of which you’ll find here, of violating a specific October 2009 order directing him to advise sexual partners of his HIV status. Gutierrez’s wife told investigators that he became infected with HIV while stationed in Italy in 2007, and that upon returning to the U.S. in 2008, he “began having unprotected sex with numerous partners.”
