Man arrested for having sexual relations with women without telling them about his HIV status

31-year-old Kanay A. Mubita is charged with 7 counts of Transfer of Bodily Fluid Which May Contain The HIV Virus

A Moscow man is facing additional charges after being arrested for allegedly having sexual relations with women without telling them about his HIV status.

And now the local health department is working to get testing and counseling done for the potential victims.

31-year-old Kanay A. Mubita was arrested last Wednesday and charged with one count of Transfer of Bodily Fluid Which May Contain The HIV Virus, a felony in Idaho.

Now he is facing six more counts of the same charge, as more victims are coming forward.

Latah County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Michelle Evans said that Mubita made an initial appearance in magistrate court on the new charges Monday.

His preliminary hearing on all seven counts is set for next Tuesday at 9 a.m.

Evans said Magistrate Judge William Hamlett has raised Mubita's bond from $5,000 to $20,000. Mubita remains in the Latah County Jail and Evans said there is no indication that he has attempted to make bond.

Moscow Police say an investigation indicated Mubita was having sexual relations with adult females, without properly informing them about his health. They allege that Mubita may have had multiple sexual partners during the last three years.

Idaho Code requires that persons who test positive for HIV virus and have AIDS or a variation of AIDS, must provide that information to any person they are sharing bodily fluids with.

Latah County prosecutors say this is the first case of its kind in the county.

Here again is more anecdotal evidence that in the vast majority of cases like this the accused is a black male.
