Man Arrested, Accused of Faking HIV Test Results
NEW YORK (AP) -- A New Yorker has been arrested on charges that he faked HIV test results so that a woman would have unprotected sex with him.
Department of Investigation Commissioner Rose Gill Hearn says Duane Lang could spend up to eight years in prison if convicted of reckless endangerment and possession of a forged instrument.
Authorities say the pair had unprotected sex eight to 10 times, from December 2007 to March 2008. When the woman later questioned the document's authenticity, Lang allegedly admitted that it was fake and he was HIV positive.
Her medical status is not being made public.
Lang's attorney did not return a call for comment on Tuesday.
The criminal complaint says the fake document bore the name of a facility where he'd volunteered.
