I know a young lady who was approached by a beggar who stabbed her with an AIDS-infected needle after she gave him money. During the resulting trial, he requested the court give him her name and address, and they did (I assume this was his right per the above discussions). She was so frightened by this development that she moved - in fact I helped her move. I gather the court was not obligated to help him track her after the trial was over.
I don’t think she’s heard from him since, or at least not recently. She was closely monitored and tested for years before they decided she was definitely not infected.
This is off the point, but she’s one of two AIDS stabbing victims I knew, and both contracted the disease by being attacked with a contaminated needle. The other lady was a nurse treating a prisoner, and when the guy got hold of the needle both guards backed off and let him have her. This lady didn’t survive.
I understand that being attacked with an AIDS contaminated needle is a very rare way of getting exposed to the disease. It’s odd both cases I knew of were in this category.
