During July, a 27 year-old man named Richard Thomas raped an acquaintance in the middle of the night. After he knew she took sleeping pills and he let himself in uninvited. He raped her while she was asleep and left when she realized what was happening.
After being arrested, he discovered he was already being punished for his crime: his victim was HIV positive. This is the face of evil:
He was shocked when he heard the news, collapsed to his knees, and asked to be taken to a hospital for testing. He claims that he was drinking and had taken cocaine and ecstasy the night of the incident and couldn’t recall the attack. The rapist said that the woman “would not lie, she tells the truth. If she says I have done it, I have done it.”
He has been assigned to the Sex Offenders Register for life… but his instant justice is a more severe punishment than that.
