The Telegraph said:
Richard Thomas knew the woman had another illness but was unaware of the HIV, Liverpool Crown Court heard.
When the 27-year-old was told she had the disease, he collapsed in "shock" and asked to be taken to hospital for tests to see if he had contracted the virus.
Thomas, of Sandringham Drive, Leigh, pleaded guilty to raping the woman on July 20 this year.
Hmmm... justice seems to work in mysterious ways....
