Update: Brandon Shullick, the shithead who infected three women with HIV after sleeping with them and not making the all-important step of informing them that he was infected, was sentenced Monday to five years in prison.
“My actions are inexcusable,” Shullick said. “There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t hate myself and regret the reckless choices (I made).”
Sure, buddy. Sure. — Grzegorek
Sex crimes in general are nasty business, but this one in particular is a stomach-turner: when people go around and engage in sexual intercourse without telling their partners they’re HIV positive. Pretty much the most egregious betrayal of trust imaginable. That was the case with one Lorain County sleazebag who was out there roaming the area but now is in police custody.
27-year-old Brandon Shullick is accused to having sex with four women while staying mum about his infection, according to the Morning Journal.
Three of the four women have tested positive for HIV. After the women contacted police about his behavior, Shullick ran to West Virginia. He came back to the area to meet up with an old girlfriend, the paper reports, and police caught up with him in Avon.
