NY Dentist Arrested for Drugs, Child Porn, and Trying to Transmit HIV to Sexual Partners

A Manhattan dentist well-known for his AIDS activism was arrested yesterday on a number of disturbing charges. According to The New York Times, those charges include possession of child pornography and possession of methamphetamine (which he obtained in exchange for some dental work).

But it also turns out that Dr. John Wolf not only is HIV-positive, but the charges include that he deliberately poked holes in condoms before he had sex with people to intentionally attempt to spread HIV to his partners.

Federal agents found the drugs and a flash drive full of child porn after searching Wolf’s home and office. Wolf admitted to possessing the child pornography in court, but denied he’s ever had sex with minors.

Back in the 1980s, Wolf was a big advocate for AIDS victims. He took another dentist to court because he had allegedly terminated his office space because Wolf had been treating people with HIV. The video above shows Wolf singing in the New York Gay Men’s Chorus in the 80s for an unreleased documentary.
