Nushawn Williams to Remain Locked Up

New York’s so-called HIV predator will remain locked up, despite having completed a 12-year sentence for knowingly infecting more than a dozen Chautauqua County residents with HIV in the late 1990s.

A judge has ordered that Nushawn Williams be kept in a secure treatment facility under the state’s civil confinement law, which says people can held after completing their sentence if the state believes they are still a threat to society.

Last June, a Chautauqua County jury decided Williams had a mental abnormality and should remain in custody.
