KC man charged with molestation has HIV

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jackson County prosecutors say a former Kansas City drill team instructor charged with child molestation had HIV.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/zQGLrV) that 40-year-old Daniel M. Roberson was charged in December with sodomy and attempted sodomy involving two boys. On Friday a grand jury indicted him on allegations that he molested a third boy and recklessly exposed one of the first two boys to the infectious virus.

Roberson now faces six felony counts. He's being held in the Jackson County jail on $75,000 bond.

Court records show that Roberson received treatment for HIV since at least July 2008 but didn't tell investigators.

Online court records don't list a lawyer for Roberson.
