Update below: Mario Hunt, an assistant teacher and coach at Cahokia High School, is accused of having sexual contact with a minor -- while he knew he was HIV positive. The alleged abuse, police say, stems back to 2011 when the victim was seventeen years old.
It's unclear exactly what his connection is to the victim, but charges say that Hunt, 35, "holds a position of trust authority or supervision" in relation to the minor.
Because he knowingly exposed the student to the virus, he is facing -- in addition to criminal sexual assault charge -- a transmission of HIV charge as well.
Officials say there could be more victims.More »
