8News Daily Poll: Should Charlie Sheen be charged?

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Charlie Sheen says his bad-boy days are over and, with Tuesday’s declaration that he’s HIV-positive, he aims to become an inspiration to others.

But the story doesn’t end their for the once famous actor.

Asked by Matt Lauer on NBC’s “Today” if he expected “a barrage of lawsuits” from past sexual partners alleging he infected them, he said wanly, “I’m sure that’s next.”

But in California, where Sheen resides, a person can be charged with a felony only if they are aware they are HIV-positive and engage in unprotected sex with another person with the specific intent of exposing them to the disease.

Sheen could potentially be sued in civil court by any partners he hasn’t already settled with, with the amount of damages they would recoup determined by a judge or jury.
