A Memphis pastor convicted of knowingly spreading HIV to at least woman has been found on a dating site.
According to NewsOne, Rodney Carr was arrested and charged with criminal exposure to HIV last year for knowingly infecting a woman with the virus. He allegedly infected a married woman he dated in 2010 and 2011, but never told her his status.
During a routine gynecological exam, the woman’s physician suggested an HIV test. The woman — whose identity has not been released — said she knew Carr infected her when the test came back positive. She said she has only been with her husband — who does not have the virus — and Carr, and that she trusted him because he is a pastor.
Rodney Carr was recently spotted on the dating site, BlackPeopleMeet, under the profile “Minterwonderful.”
“He’s not wonderful. He’s a creep. Going around doing what he’s doing. He’s not wonderful at all,” said the married victim. She also said she believed there were more victims, and that he should be taken off the dating site.
Carr tested positive for HIV in 2005, and had knowledge of his status and the exposure law. At a recent court appearance, he claimed that he did not knowingly spread the virus.
Rodney Carr is not the only pastor accused of spreading HIV. Last July, Atlanta pastor Craig Lamar Davis of Full Gospel Baptist Church was arrested on charges of reckless conduct after two women said he did not tell them he is HIV positive. Davis is married and started an affair with one of the women, Ronita McAfee, after talking on Facebook.
A couple of months after the affair started, Davis called McAfee and told her one of his ex-girlfriends tested positive for HIV. He told McAfee to get tested and said it wasn’t a death sentence if the test came back positive. McAfee tested negative, but has tried to warn other women about Davis, who she says shows “no regard for the human life.” McAfee also accused Davis of spreading HIV to two men.
Rodney Carr is scheduled to appear in court in December.
