Local HIV-Postitive Man Charged In Needle Exchange Case
Franklin County prosecutors have charged an HIV positive man who allegedly used the same needle to give himself and his stepdaughter tattoos. 42-year-old Jeremy Huffman has been indicted on felonious assault and child endangerment charges. The family denies the allegations that Huffman gave his 15-year-old stepdaughter eight tattoos over a two year time period. Prosecutors say at least four of the tattoos were given after Huffman had tattooed himself and the child's mother, who also is HIV positive.
