After being detained in October, Earnest Lacour of Oklahoma City is now charged with seven counts of deliberately infecting several persons with HIV.
In October 2022, Lacour, 30, was accused with transmitting the contagious illness on three criminal counts. According to court records, he is currently charged with seven felonies. Additionally, Lacour propagated HIV throughout a three-year period, from September 2019, to October 2022. He is accused of engaging in activities likely to transfer the HIV on each of the days listed in each count.
The lady who reported herself to the police after learning she was HIV positive accused Lacour of giving her the illness and exclusively revealed that she believed her illness to be caused by a “stomach ulcer.” In addition, the mother said she had been unwell “for about two years” until being identified in March 2022.
She FaceTimed Lacour weeping at the news after learning it, and she claims Lacour comforted her by saying, “It’s OK” and “It’s not a big deal.” She also posted on social media, accusing the defendant of intentionally spreading the illness. As a consequence, more women made the same allegation. It wasn’t until the anonymous woman and Lacour went to the doctor together that she discovered he was HIV positive.
I convinced him to come to the doctor with me. He was supposed to get his blood drawn at the doctor’s office, but he started treatment the same day I started treatment.
Lacour’s attorney, Joel Porter, filed a motion for bond in March, but it was denied by a judge. The 30-year-old’s preliminary hearing is expected to occur later this month. – Steve Sijenyi
