Convicted sex offender accused of assaulting young children, giving them HIV
HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – A registered sex offender in Texas is now accused of assaulting two young girls and infecting them with HIV.
Now, police are asking parents to contact them if their children had any contact with David Richard Wilson.
According to KTRK, Wilson is HIV positive and claimed he had sex with “numerous other people.”
10 years ago, authorities say Wilson was convicted of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl.
A judge sentenced him to a deferred adjudication, which gave him probation if he followed a set of rules.
However, he violated the agreement after he failed to pay restitution and failed to keep his distance from children.
Wilson pleaded with the judge for mercy.
“I will not fail and try to do better. I have to for me and my two kids. Everyone makes mistakes. I’m no exception. This is my first and last mistake,” a letter to the judge read.
The judge sentenced him to four years in prison.
After being released, he moved into an apartment complex with relatives.
Last year, officers say a 23-month-old child was taken to a doctor for an infection.
At the doctor’s office, the family learned she tested positive for HIV and had two other sexually transmitted diseases.
At that time, KTRK says Wilson learned he was also HIV positive.
Police say they did not have any information on who was to blame for the child’s condition at that point, so no one was arrested.
However, a 14-year-old girl became pregnant and then spoke out against Wilson.
She also tested positive for HIV.
Wilson is now facing two counts of sexual assault of a child.
If convicted, he could face up to life in prison.
