Know What It Takes to Win an New York STD Case
According to New York Public Health Law §2307, “Any person who, knowing himself or herself to be infected with an infectious venereal disease, has sexual intercourse with another shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.”
Before you take the courageous step of going to court and facing the person who infected you, you should be aware of the issues related to proving an STD case. To win your lawsuit, your attorney will need to prove:
- Who infected you. This can be difficult because the incubation period for different venereal diseases varies.
- That the accused knew he/she had the STD prior to sexual contact.
- That you suffered physical harm and emotional hurt. It can be difficult to stand up in court and discuss this delicate situation – knowing that you are putting yourself under others’ scrutiny.
