Calgarian pleads guilty to aggravated sex assault, didn't tell women he had HIV

CALGARY — A Calgary man has pleaded guilty to six counts of aggravated sexual assault for not telling six women he was HIV positive.

Court heard John McNamara met the women on dating websites and had unprotected sex with them between 2012 and 2013.

According to the agreed statement of facts, McNamara denied having a sexually transmitted disease to one of his sexual partners in 2012.

The woman located a pill bottle labelled Prezista and an online search led her to discover it was prescribed to treat HIV and AIDS.

Police say investigators then found other women who had unprotected sex with McNamara.

All of the women underwent rigorous HIV testing over a period of six months and none of them contracted the virus that can lead to AIDS.

A sentencing date is to be determined in March. (CTV Calgary)
