A registered sex offender who knew he was infected with the AIDS virus faces life in prison for having sex with a 15-year-old boy from Port Hueneme.
Sean Alexander De France, 40, of Santa Barbara pleaded guilty last month in Ventura County Superior Court to six counts of sodomy, oral copulation and committing lewd acts upon a child under the age of 16.
Each count carries a special allegation because De France committed the crimes knowing he was infected with HIV.
Deputy Dist. Atty. Edward Ulloa would not comment on whether the teenager was infected with the virus as well. But if he were, Ulloa said, an attempted murder charge probably would have been filed.
Court records indicate that De France wore a condom when he had sex with the boy.
Under the "three strikes" law, De France faces 165 years to life in prison, Ulloa said. He is scheduled to be sentenced June 25.
