    SPOKANE, Wash. - On May 20, Spokane Major Crimes' detectives arrested Zuriel E. Roush, 22,  for first degree assault. Roush is HIV positive and the arrest stemmed from him having unprotected sex with a male victim knowing he was carrying the potentially deadly virus. >>

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane health officials fear a man with HIV may have had unprotected sex with as many as 80 partners.

A spokeswoman for the regional health district, Julie Graham, told The Spokesman-Review it's the biggest investigation in at least five years. The 22-year-old man, Zuriel Roush, is accused of exposing another man to the virus that causes AIDS. He pleaded not guilty to an assault charge at his arraignment Wednesday in Spokane County Superior Court.

Court documents say Roush signed health district paperwork last year warning him it was a crime to expose people to the virus without warning.

The documents say Roush met men on a Web site and went to People's Park for anonymous sex.

A trial date has been set for July 20.

The Oregonian reports that the Clatsop County sheriff's office accused Marlin Lee Larson of several crimes after the boater told investigators he couldn't see where he was driving because the dash of his boat was blocking his view when he was sitting down.
