COPPERAS COVE - A Copperas Cove man faces charges of aggravated sexual assault with deadly weapon after police say he had unprotected sex with a 16-year-old boy.
According to an arrest affidavit obtained by News Channel 25, that deadly weapon is actually HIV.
The affidavit describes how 26-year-old Christopher Everett allegedly met a 16-year-old boy on an adult social networking site called "Grinder." The two chatted via cell phone and decided they would get together on a Friday night in October.
During an interview with police, the teenaged victim explained how Everett invited him to his home in Copperas Cove. The victim told police how he snuck out of his parent's house and met Everett just before midnight. The two then rode together to Everett's home in Copperas Cove.
According to the affidavit, Everett "began kissing and touching him." The victim then told investigators that Everett had unprotected sex with him and drove him back home.
The victim learned through another "Grinder" user that Everett claimed to be HIV-positive. Police say Everett admitted to that he was HIV positive during an interview with investigators. According to the affidavit, Everett did not inform his victim that he was HIV-positive.
Everett was in the Coryell County jail Tuesday in lieu of a $50,000 bond. He is charged with aggravated sexual assault with deadly weapon, an offense punishable by five to 99 years or even life in prison.
