Ex-boyfriend: Man accused of spreading HIV still 'hooking up' on dating websites

SAN DIEGO - Team 10 has tracked down the online activities of the man accused of knowingly spreading HIV. An online dating profile appears to show activity within the past few days after he was charged.

Decked out in designer duds, Thomas Guerra, 29, showed no emotion in his first court appearance Tuesday.

A judge ordered him to stay off Internet dating websites, after prosecutors told 10News they believe he is still using them.

"I feel disgust and anger," said a man who only wanted to be identified as Bill. He said he is not surprised by the concerns of prosecutors.

Bill, who is HIV positive, says Guerra did not disclose his status to him during the relationship and may have infected him.

Bill says their year-long relationship began on the dating site Grindr, which is based on location proximity.

He showed Team 10 what he says is the profile Guerra is using these days. In it, he describes himself a homecoming queen and part-time model.

Bill says Guerra has been on the site several times in the past week, including a login three days ago.

"I think he's a sexual sociopath," Bill said. "This is someone that has no feelings and no emotions as to what he's been doing to people, and he's continuing to engage in this type of behavior."

Bill says he filed his police report Tuesday.

Guerra is accused of a misdemeanor count of knowingly infecting a former boyfriend with HIV.

Yet another ex-boyfriend – a San Francisco man who also met Guerra on Grindr – believes Guerra also infected him.

Dozens of texts from an investigative report obtained by Team 10 appear to show him bragging about spreading the disease. Prosecutors say they are pursuing other leads in the case.

Bill hopes the courts can make sure Guerra will not be headed online.

"I know of other people he has supposedly been hooking up with these past few weeks," Bill said. "I don't want other people getting hurt."

Outside court, Guerra initially said he was going to read a statement, but then decided against it.
