A man whom Canadian authorities jailed and deported to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, after he knowingly passed on HIV to his partners, arrived in the state last Thursday February 7th.
According to an article published on Monday March 10, 2014 in the Toronto Sun, Ralph concealed his HIV-positive status from four sex partners and was found guilty of several crimes, including forcibly confining and assaulting his last victim.
The Vincentian national pleaded guilty to endangering two other women’s lives in 2009 and from January 1, 2003 to January 1, 2005. He admitted he had sex without revealing his condition to them. They tested negative for HIV.
Reports are that Ralph knew of his HIV status since May 2003 and despite repeated warnings by public health officials to disclose his condition to sex partners, he did not.
The SUN said when Ralph was arrested in January 2011, police issued a public alert and Toronto public health authorities found two other victims.
The 41-year-old, who will be 42 on Valentine’s Day, is originally from the East St. George area and goes by the alias “Shorty”.
Ralph was sentenced to over five years in prison in 2014.
