Gary Debaun v. State
Case Number(s):
Loading the player...



Mr. Debaun was charged with violating a state law that prohibits people with HIV from having sexual intercourse without informing their partners of their HIV status. He argued the term “sexual intercourse” was limited to sex between a man and a woman and did not include his interaction with a male partner. The trial court agreed and dismissed the charge against him. The Third District Court of Appeal reversed the trial court but certified conflict with a decision from another state appellate court.
