Abstract

Criminal law is one of the regulatory tools being used in the United States to influence behavior by persons who have HIV/AIDS. This article reports on the characteristics and prevalence of HIV-specific criminal exposure and transmission laws, and the enforcement of those laws through prosecutions during the period 1986-2001. It also examines the possible mechanisms through which criminal law influences behavior and considers how these might apply to the specific laws described.
