— Authorities are looking for a Granville County man accused of spreading the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

George Edward Cash is charged with assault with a deadly weapon, inflicting serious injury and two public health violations, authorities said.

If you know of Cash's whereabouts, you are asked to call the Granville County Sheriff's Office at (919) 693-3213.

In August, a Raleigh man pleaded guilty to charges that he failed to use a condom and notify sexual partners that he has HIV.

Joshua Waldon Weaver, 23, received a 45-day jail sentence that was suspended and 30 months of supervised probation under the conditions that he comply with North Carolina Administrative Code 10-41 A.02020 (1)(a)(e), which addresses control measures regarding HIV, and North Carolina General Statute 130A-144 (f), which requires all people to comply with measures controlling communicable diseases.

    Terrorist laws should apply. He's basically a walking biological weapon.

    Sure, people need to be smart and use protection. But seriously, some people are not educated in that sense. I agree that we all need to be smart in that sense, but this guy should also be held accountable for his actions. Knowingly giving someone HIV is an awful act of hatred and shows no morals whatsoever. And for all of you who don't think he should be sentenced with "attempted murder" or "assault with a deadly weapon"...what if the sex was forced??
