SAN DIEGO (AP) — The city attorney’s office of San Diego has filed a complaint against a man accusing him of intentionally infecting at least one person with HIV.

Spokesman Michael Giorgino said the city’s attorney’s office presented the court a complaint Thursday alleging Thomas Miguel Guerra intentionally infected a man with the virus that can cause AIDS.

Guerra has pleaded not guilty to a previous count of violating the city’s Health and Safety code.

Attorney James M. V. Fitzpatrick said his client maintains his innocence and will enter a not guilty plea again when he is arraigned Sept. 2 for the amended complaint that specifies HIV.

Fitzpatrick said the allegations were made by a boyfriend from a bad break-up and are baseless.
