Daryll Rowe, un peluquero escocés de 27 años, ha sido declarado culpable de intentar contagiar deliberadamente el VIH a otras diez personas que conoció a través de Grindr, una aplicación móvil para encuentros homosexuales.

Además, según ha publicado el diario The Sun, Rowe no sólo habría infectado a sus víctimas sino que también se habría burlado de ellas una vez que habían terminado de mantener relaciones sexuales. De acuerdo a la información publicada por el medio inglés, el escocés habría enviado el siguiente mensaje a uno de los hombres que conoció en Grindr: “A lo mejor tienes fiebre porque me metí dentro de ti y tengo el sida, jajaja, ¡ups!”.

El joven, que llevó a cabo los hechos entre octubre de 2015 y diciembre de 2016 en Brighton y otras ciudades del noreste de Inglaterra, se negaba a utilizar preservativo a la hora de mantener relaciones sexuales con la intención de transmitir el virus que le había sido diagnosticado tan sólo unos meses antes. En su defensa, Rowe alegó ante el jurado pensar que estaba “curado” además de asegurar que nunca le dijo a las víctimas que estaba “limpio”.

Todo comenzó en abril de 2015 cuando, tras ser diagnosticado con el sida en su Edimburgo natal, decidió trasladarse al sur de Inglaterra, a la ciudad de Brighton, donde conoció a ocho de sus víctimas. Según han testificado los afectados, Rowe era persistente en el hecho de no usar preservativo e incluso llegaba a ponerse agresivo si se le contradecía. Cuando una de sus parejas sexuales se negaba, el escocés se ponía un condón que previamente había roto para intentar infectarles.

A pesar de que en un primer momento los médicos que le trataban coincidían en que estaba llevando bien el diagnóstico de su enfermedad, la situación empezó a preocuparles cuando Rowe dejó de asistir a sus citas para recibir el tratamiento antirretroviral que hacía más difícil el contagio del virus de inmunodeficiencia humana.

En ese instante, el joven, que además había contraído un herpes que hacía más factible el traspaso de la infección, fue advertido de que podría ser acusado legalmente de estar poniendo en riesgo la salud de otras personas. y fue entonces cuando, después de que dos de sus víctimas dieran positivo en VIH y coincidieran en la descripción de la persona que se lo había transmitido, la policía comenzó la investigación que llevó hasta su detención.

Después de seis semanas de proceso judicial, la jueza Christine Henson sólo pudo declararle culpable de cuatro de los diez cargos que se le imputaban ante la incapacidad del jurado de alcanzar un veredicto unánime en los otros seis tras más de 18 horas de deliberación.
