More women are coming forward claiming a Greenacres police officer exposed them to HIV, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
Officer Ervans Saintclair was arrested last week for criminal transmission of HIV and put on administrative leave. There are now 8 alleged victims, according to the sheriff’s office. Investigators say four cases occurred outside the statute of limitations.
Saintclair found out he was HIV-positive when he had his pre-employment physical exam for the police department back in 2007 however it wasn’t until a woman came forward in 2013 that Saintclair was in any sort of trouble. The woman said the police officer told her he was HIV-positive only after they had sex several times in 2007.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says it is still in the process of interviewing other possible victims and additional people continue contacting them.
Saintclair is currently free on a $30,000 bond. He has another court appearance March 6.
