FRANKLIN, Ind. (AP) -- A suburban Indianapolis man who failed to warn sexual partners that he has HIV now faces more felony charges.
Johnson County Prosecutor Brad Cooper on Tuesday filed 15 additional charges against 47-year-old Tony Perkins, who used a dating site to meet women after being diagnosed with HIV six years ago.
The Greenwood man already faces up to six years in prison after pleading guilty last month to two counts of failure to warn partners. Cooper says the new counts represent 15 of 24 additional women who have come forward since February.
Police say nine women chose to remain anonymous, so no charges were filed on their behalves.
Cooper says none of the victims has tested positive for HIV so far.
Perkins is jailed without bond.
