BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) _ The attorney for a New York man imprisoned amid accusations he infected 13 young women with HIV in the 1990s says his client doesn't have the virus.
Nushawn Williams' lawyer says Williams' blood was examined by the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Attorney John Nuchereno tells Buffalo media that he doesn't believe Williams ever was HIV-positive.
Williams has been in prison since pleading guilty in 1999 to statutory rape and reckless endangerment in Chautauqua County in New York's southwest corner.
His sentence ended in 2010 but he remains in prison under a state law that allows confinement of dangerous sex offenders.
A civil trial is scheduled for next month to determine whether he will remain locked up.
