A Frederick man was arrested after it was found out that he knowingly infected women with HIV. Police say the 34-year-old man met these women on online dating sites and dating apps. Randolph Smith was arrested by the Frederick County police after they acquired evidence indicating he was engaging in sexual activities with women knowing that he was HIV positive. The investigation into the matter lasted 21 months and led to his arrest.
After getting the evidence, the detectives in the investigation contacted some of the victims and received search and seizure warrants against Randolph Smith. Smith was indicted of the charges below by a Grand jury:
4 counts – Knowing Transfer of HIV Prohibited
4 counts – Reckless Endangerment
4 counts – Assault – First Degree
Police have asked anyone who might have engaged in sexual contact with Smith around or after 2017 July to call them using 301-600-TIPS (8477), text through 240-674-8477 or send an email to FPDcrimetip@frederickmdpolice.org.
Speaking in response to the incidence, Meetpositives.com CEO, Jack Lombardi said, “When there are dating websites for people living with HIV and other lifelong STDs, this is unacceptable. Using the HIV dating site reduces the infection rate and would have prevented this scenario. It’s important that we all participate in reducing the HIV infection rate and dating sites for HIV singles is the right step towards this goal.”
