A Yellowknife man is charged with aggravated sexual assault for allegedly not disclosing his positive HIV status to his female victim.
33-year-old Bobby Kaotalok was charged in Yellowknife back in late August of this year and is to be back in court to enter a plea on February 5th.
The Crown prosecutor in the case says Kaotalok has a previous conviction in Yellowknife for the exact same offence in 2013.
He adds that the woman is having tests to see if she has in fact contracted the potentially fatal disease.
Her name is protected by a publication ban.
The man’s actions would appear to have warranted a public warning from RCMP but Tuesday was the first time any media had heard about or reported on the latest charge.
HIV is the virus than can lead to AIDS.
