An unemployed man has been ordered to get written permission from the police if he wants to have intercourse.

A magistrate ruled that Aaron Sutcliffe (29), who’s HIV-positive, must tell police the name of anyone he plans to have intercourse with after he’d deliberately infected women with HIV, Daily Mail reports.

The court ruled that Sutcliffe, from Fleetwood, Lancashire in the UK, is a risk to the public both in Britain and abroad, making him the subject of a full sexual risk prevention order, Mirror UK reports.

“You must tell the police public protection unit in the area where you live of the identity of the person you intend to have sex with,” the order states.

“You must provide contact details of that person to the unit and get written acknowledgement of the notification.”

This means the police have the right to contact anyone Sutcliffe intends to have intercourse with and officers will ensure the person is aware of his sexual past.

In addition, the order stipulates that Aaron must wear a condom every time he has sex. The order was applied for by Lancashire police prosecutor Chris Keogh.

Sutcliffe, a father of three, was charged with causing grievous bodily harm to two women after he’d infected them with the HI virus, and was told he was a sexual risk to the public. The order is in place for two years, World News reports.

“He knows his future sexual behaviour must be appropriate,” said his lawyer Patrick Nelligan, adding that Sutcliffe’s current partner is fully aware of the situation.

“If he engages in a sexual relationship with anyone else that person must be told.”
