A former police officer is heading to prison for eight years for failing to tell a sexual partner he is HIV -positive.


Ervans Saintclair, 41, who worked as a police officer for the Greenacres Police Department in Greenacres, Florida, was sentenced to 8 years behind bars by Circuit Judge Samantha Schosberg Feuer, two months after a Palm Beach County jury convicted him of the first-degree felony charge.

The Palm Beach Post reports that Saintclair apologized to the victim before he was sentenced Friday, June 15, saying he had made "some bad choices and because of those choices, I am here."

After apologizing to his victims, his lawyer Sim Gershon asked for a sentence of no longer than the minimum possible 21 months in prison. He was accused in April of uninformed HIV sexual intercourse, a felony under Florida law that carries a possible 30-year sentence.

Judge Schosberg Feuer reprimanded the former cop during his sentencing saying “police officers are supposed to uphold the law,” she also added that he put his lover in danger multiple times.


“She could have contracted HIV and died,” Schosberg Feuer said, explaining her reason to exceed the prosecutor’s request for a nearly seven-year sentence.

Fortunately, the victim has tested negative for the disease. She did, however, testify that while dating Saintclair from 2010 to 2013, he never revealed his HIV diagnosis despite engaging in unprotected sex. A doctor also testified that Saintclair had been told in 2007 he is HIV positive.


Saintclair's ex-wife had reported him to authorities and provided them with names of other women he'd had sex with.

The State Attorney's Office says a second count of uninformed HIV Infected Sexual Intercourse against Staintclair is still pending, as well as more cases.

The felony charges are based only on the claim that he didn’t inform any of them he had HIV before they had sexual intercourse. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
