Under California law, anyone infected with an STD must disclose that information to partners before any sexual activity begins.
Sadly, however, those with power and influence often believe they are above the law, and decide not to disclose this vital information to sexual partners. This may result in an unexpected STD transmission and a lifetime of physical, emotional, and financial turmoil for their victims.
Below, we discuss the rights that STD transmission victims have and the tactics that the powerful often use to try to keep them silent.
“No One Will Believe You”
One of the most common threats that the rich and powerful use to scare their victims into silence is that it’s their word against their victims’. And, what’s implied here, is that the word of the powerful few will always be taken more seriously than that of the powerless many—so why even bother reporting it?
Do not take these words to heart. You have rights that must be protected. Your partner violated the law, and they must be held accountable.
An experienced attorney will be able to represent you in court and fight for your best interests. At KMD Law, we know the tactics the defendant and their team will use, and how to strategize against these ploys
“You Won’t Be Able to Prove It”
This is another narrative that the rich and powerful tell their victims that is simply untrue.
There is a plethora of evidence that your attorney can use in the courtroom to demonstrate negligence and liability.
Never believe that anything is unprovable. This is very rarely, if ever, the case.
