Also on this week’s Healthstyles Glickstein interviews Robert Suttle, Assisant Director at Sero Project. “Sero is a network of people with HIV and allies fighting for freedom from stigma and injustice. Sero is particularly focused on ending inappropriate criminal prosecutions of people with HIV for non-disclosure of their HIV status, potential or perceived HIV exposure or HIV transmission.” Mr. Suttle shares his personal experience imprisoned in a Louisiana prison in January, 2011, after accepting a plea bargain and serving six months for a conviction under Louisiana’s so-called “Intentional Exposure to AIDS Virus” statute.  There is an excellent inter-active map on the Sero home page so you can see the current status of these laws in the state you live in.
