HIV in Minnesota Criminal Courts:
Protecting the Public or Criminalizing a
Minnesota Statute §609.2241 makes the knowing transfer of communicable disease a crime. In 2014 the Minnesota Supreme Court overturned the conviction of an HIV+ defendant raising questions regarding the statute and its public health implications. This program will discuss the pros and cons of prosecutions under the statute, how to advise clients, and how to handle issues involving HIV in your practice. In addition, this course will clarify the current health risks of HIV and public health considerations when assessing cases and claims. A panel of speakers will lead a discussion of strategies and responses to potential defendants and potential crime victims in our current context.
