Allen, TX asked in Criminal Law for Louisiana

Q: Is it illegal to knowingly expose someone to HIV in the state of Louisiana?

I among other women have been exposed. One female was with this man for 5 years and his whole family tried to warn her that this man's wife died and had HIV when she died and that he also had it and he just told her that his family did not like her and wanted to break them up she believed him he would not allow her to dontae blood and he wouldn't either and skw when she saw that he was HIV positive thats when she realized he had been lying about his illness he also exposed me and lied to me about it as well...How do you have a wife for 20 years that has HIV and yall sleep together and then you dont know that you have it he told me over and over again that he has been tested he will find the paper work and show me so my question is in a court of law he should have to go to records and produce those negative test results he claims he had....he should have been more proactive knowing his wife had aids and he had it too!
