Man accused of raping 11-year-old girl, exposing her to HIV
BATON ROUGE - Police say a man was arrested after he was accused of raping an 11-year-old girl, intentionally exposing her to HIV in the process.
47-year-old Larry Williams Jr. was booked on four counts of first degree rape, molestation of a juvenile and four counts of intentional exposure to HIV.
The now 12-year-old victim said that starting in September of 2015, Williams would come into her bedroom and bargain with her for sexual favors. The victim said that on four separate occasions, Williams came to her and offered her money or the use of his cellphone in exchange for sex.
In an interview with detectives, the victim described four incidents where she performed various sex acts on Williams. According to the victim, the most recent incident happened last month.
Police said it was determined during the investigation that Williams is HIV positive, and has been aware of this status for at least five years.
When he was brought in for questioning, Williams denied any sexual contact with the victim, but he did admit that the victim did not know that he was HIV positive.
Williams was processed at the BRPD Third District and later booked into the parish prison on the above charges.
