Man mum about HIV gets 3 years

FRANK GRAY | The Journal Gazette

A Silver Lake man was sentenced Wednesday in Allen Superior Court to three years in prison for having sex with women and not telling them he was HIV-positive.

Travis Spoor, 37, pleaded guilty to three counts of malicious mischief in June, and a plea agreement called for a sentence of one year on each count to be served one after the other.

Meanwhile, an additional charge of malicious mischief was filed against Spoor for the same reason. He will face trial on that charge later.

Spoor contacted his victims through dating websites, though he met one woman through a mutual friend.

In 2013, Spoor signed a duty-to-warn document in accordance with Indiana law that says people with dangerous communicable diseases have an obligation to warn others they might be put at risk.
