According to authorities, an Oklahoma City man is accused of contracting HIV, OKC FOx reports.
Earnest Lacour is being held in the Oklahoma County Jail and charged with three felony counts of spreading a contagious disease.
Authorities say a woman first took to social media, accusing the defendant of knowingly spreading the disease. As a result, more women came forward with the same claim.

A woman diagnosed with HIV went to the doctor with Lacour.
