Charlie insisted that he has shared his diagnosis with all of his sex partners since he was diagnosed 4 years ago. He further claims he only has had unprotected sex with 2 women since his diagnosis and each woman was under the care of his personal Dr. at the time, Dr. Robert Huizenga who appeared on the show with him. Charlie is  quoted as saying “I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me, that threaten the health of so many others. That couldn’t be further from the truth”

Charlie’s coming out may lead to legal woes. While the actor claims emphatically that he  shared his status with all of his partners Pornstar Elizabeth Bentley has told TMZ that she had no idea that he  was HIV positive during their romantic fling earlier this year. She  does however make it  clear that they always had protected sexual encounters.  At least 6 women have  already  retained legal representation in Los Angelos according to news sources. The women are claiming that they’ve had sex both protected and unprotected with the actor recently, some as recent as last month.

It is against the law to not  expose your HIV  status to your  partner in the  state of  California. The stakes are higher if someone knows they have HIV and have sex with the intent to transmit the deadly virus. It’s then considered a felony punishable by a maximum of 8 years in  prison.
