A 35-year-old man has been jailed for three-and-a-half years for infecting his girlfriend with HIV.
The pair met at a Bournemouth nightclub and had unprotected sex during their relationship even though the victim had been concerned the man had the virus.
The Zimbabwean man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, admitted one count of grievous bodily harm.
Judge Roger Jarvis said the crime was "beyond comprehension" and recommended he be deported.
"It took place in what to the victim was a loving relationship, but in truth, on your part, there was a callous and cruel deceit.
"You knew she had this anxiety and you misled her. Your victim was only 25 years of age."
Now obviously the main blame for this unhappy event falls upon Mr X of Zimbabwe. But perhaps by the age of 25 poor Ms Y should have worked out that some men will say anything to get a woman into bed. A bit of a gamble to take with a chap from a country where 34% of adults are HIV infected.
