AIDS rapist gets 5 year in jail
Updated: 2005-08-02 08:41

A man infected by AIDS was recently sentenced to five years in prison for raping a female college student in a graveyard in Maoming City, South China's Guangdong Province in March, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported.

The girl was not infected with HIV, the paper quoted doctors as saying.

The man, 37, surnamed as Wu, was accused of raping the girl, only identified as Xiao Jia, on the early morning March 27 this year when she was on her way home in Gaozhou via Maoming from her college in Guangzhou, the report said.

Xiao Jia, 21, was from a poor farmer family in Gaozhou, the report said. She went home for some paper work to apply for a student loan.

"I study medical sciences in college. My first reaction after being raped was to commit suicide when I learned that the man had AIDS," the girl was quoted as saying.

She had a more difficult time after being isolated by her friends and roommates in school who later knew her misfortune.

Wu, who was infected with HIV in 1998, transmitted the deadly virus to his wife, who died last year, the paper said, citing a unnamed manager with the Maoming bus company, for which Wu worked.

Wu was fired by the company March 28 when he was arrested for the rape.
