Richard Thomas admitted to sexually assaulting the victim, but was unaware of her status. He reportedly said that the woman — who he knew — ‘would not lie’ about the attack and is now awaiting his test results, which were to be available Friday.

Richard Thomas, a man convicted of raping a woman, collapsed after being informed that his victim was HIV-positive.
A drugged-up British rapist who attacked a woman sleeping in her own bed could have contracted HIV from her, it’s emerged.
Richard Thomas was jailed for five years and four months on Monday after confessing to breaking into his victim’s Manchester home in the middle of the night on July 20.
She awoke to find the 27-year-old assaulting her. Frozen, she could only look in his eyes as he pulled up his shorts and left.
Thomas reportedly knew that the woman, who had taken a sleeping pill earlier in the evening, was sick.
But he did not realize that she was HIV-positive. He now faces a tense wait until Friday to find out whether she has passed on the virus.
Cops said that, when he was told she had the disease during questioning, he collapsed and asked to be taken for tests.
Thomas’ attorney Virginia Hayton told Liverpool Crown Court her client could not remember the attack because he had been drinking heavily, and taking cocaine and Ecstasy.
“But when told about it, he said that the woman would not lie, she tells the truth. If she says I have done it, I have done it,” added Hayton.
She added that Thomas now had the worry of contracting the virus, reports Metro.
“But it is his own fault, if he had not committed this offense, he would not have placed himself in this position,’ she added.
