No additional charges for man accused of spreading HIV

SAN DIEGO - No additional charges were brought Tuesday against a man accused of knowingly spreading HIV.

Thomas Miguel Guerra, 29, was in San Diego County Court for a readiness hearing. Guerra is charged by the City Attorney’s Office with one misdemeanor count of willfully spreading HIV. A judge ordered him not to use online dating websites.

In an investigative report obtained by 10News, dozens of text messages from Guerra appear to show him bragging about duping unwitting partners.

That list of partners may be growing.

A man told the KGO in San Francisco he and Guerra dated for several months in 2010 and believes Guerra infected him.

“Around our second date, the topic of sex and status came up and he said he was negative and clean … It's surreal to expect someone so handsome and charming to come and do something like this,” said the ex-boyfriend.

He says he has since learned other Guerra exes also tested positive.        

“There was a group of gay young men in Fresno that suddenly tested positive, out of nowhere,” said the accuser.

Another man, a San Diegan, who says he was also infected by Guerra, tells 10News he knows of at least two dozen other potential victims.
