She was a single mother who fell for her son’s coach.
They started a sexual relationship.
He pestered her repeatedly to have sex without a condom.
He probably told her rubbers didn’t allow sex to feel the same.
She gave in.
She shouldn’t have, because he gave her HIV, knowing that he had the disease.
Earlier this year, 42-year-old Jimmy Bernard Billingsley pleaded guilty to aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury when he admitted that he’s known since 2008 that he was HIV-positive, yet still had unprotected sex with a woman he was dating in 2009. Billingsley, who faced anywhere from probation to 20 years in prison, left it up to a judge to determine his fate. State District Judge Robb Catalano settled on 15 years, according to the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office today.
According to the DA’s office, Billingsley admitted he’d “been intimate on numerous occasions with a woman he met in 2009 while coaching her son’s youth football team.” In 2010 she learned she was HIV-positive. She called police because Billingsley was the only man with whom she’d had sex. Says the DA’s office in a statement dispatched to media today, “She suspected that he had infected her with
the virus after he insisted on having unprotected sex.”
At a hearing on Friday Billingsley took the stand and acknowledged that yes, he’d had sex with several partners since he learned of his status — and never told any of them he’s HIV-positive. Shortly after that the judge sentenced him to 15 years.
““This defendant’s intentional non-disclosure to numerous sex partners was egregious, dangerous, willful
and malicious,” said Assistant District Attorney Joshua Ross in a prepared statement. “He is truly a snake in the grass. His sentence brings some justice to his known victim and provides a measure of protection for so many others.”
I read something on another blog the pretty much sums up how this happened, and how it will happen again.
A disproportionate number of black men are in prison, uneducated or unemployed, reducing the supply of men for women to marry. This leads women themselves to have more partners over their lifespans, increasing their risk of infection. Additionally, many men don’t go to the doctor to get regular STD panels (that means a check for ALL diseases, not just HIV), especially among those who’ve been marginalized in our society. This is compounded by the fact that many people will do lots of creative things in the bedroom with people without having a clue about where their bodies have been (nearly every hip-hop song on the radio encourages men to have a slew of women). So, the fact of the matter is that when you share yourself without thinking it through, you make yourself vulnerable to those who are not careful about their health.
I can just see the gaggle of bat-shit-crazy black, male bloggers on sites we shall not name, blaming this woman, call her stupid and place the blame at her feet. Then they’ll claim that it’s because of racism and that the Prison Industrial Complex cripples black men. THEN they’ll say the woman was a snitch because she put another black man back into the PIC. Wash and repeat.
Ladies, listen to me, especially if you’re on this site by morbid interest, because you are a NBAB (nothing but a black man) woman. These ex-convicts are getting out of prison and DELIBERATELY targeting unsuspecting single, lonely black women. If a man refuses to wear a condom, he has absolutely no concern for your well-being. They only care about getting their nut off, and care nothing about giving them the “gift” of a slow, agonizing death.
