HIV In the First Degree

A Dade man finds himself accused of raping three young boys. Because he is HIV-positive, prosecutors are calling it attempted murder.

Jay Levine, Perea's defense attorney, refuses to discuss the case. "I can't comment on a pending case and I don't think it does any good for my client to talk. If I have anything to say, I'll tell it to the jury," Levine says, adding that he anticipates the case will go to trial.

If so, his client will inevitably face intense media scrutiny, as will the prosecutors who intend to prove that Perea's HIV status was not just a medical condition, but a murder weapon.
