A six person jury found Michael Kately guilty of intentionally exposing his ex-girlfriend to the HIV virus. Kately was diagnosed back in 2001, shortly before he began a two year relationship with the victim. During testimony, the victim said she noticed Kately was taking large amounts of medication and making frequent trips to the doctor. She says Kately told her he was being treated for colon cancer. But his live-in girlfriend says she found out the truth, when she discovered a letter Kately received from a doctor at the VA clinic. Defense Attorney Jackie Scott tried to convince the jury that there was enough reasonable doubt to let her client go free. But the jury disagreed, handing down a guilty verdict. Sentencing is scheduled for later next month. Kately could serve up to 10 years behind bars. Despite being exposed to HIV, so far the victim has tested negative for the virus.
