A man in Ohio has been arrested for raping his son, who was six months old, according to police. Lenny Love, 29-years old, allegedly assaulted the child knowing that he was HIV positive. Love is being charged by the police in Silverton, Ohio with two counts of rape, one count of felonious assault and one count of marijuana possession.
Love has reportedly confessed to the crime and is set to be arraigned on Monday. There are no reports as to whether Love was on drugs or not during the assault, or has a history of mental problems. Many sexual assaults on children take place when the accused is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Chris Nelloms, a former track star at The Ohio State University, was given 40-to-life for assaulting a girl in his care while under the influence of alcohol.
In 2009, another man was given 45 years in prison for sleeping with a woman knowing that he had HIV.
