Guards face HIV threat from inmate

By Lou Michel
News Staff Reporter

A Wende Correctional Facility inmate who claims to have the HIV virus and hepatitis bragged to other inmates Friday night that he had infected three corrections officers with his blood in a fight, union representatives said Saturday.

"When the inmate was put back in his cell, he started boasting: "I have HIV. I have hepatitis. You''re going to die," said Tom Butler, spokesman for the New York State Correctional Officers & Police Benevolent Association.

All three corrections officers in the Alden facility were taken to Erie County Medical Center, and two required a special combination of drugs as a precautionary treatment against the deadly diseases, according to Frederick W. Kintzel Jr., the union''s business agent.
