A dentist arrested in New York on charges of possessing child pornography and doing dental work in exchange for methamphetamine also is accused of poking holes in condoms “in an intentional attempt to spread HIV to his sexual partners,” according to a federal complaint obtained by the New York Times.
Dr. John Wolf, who is known for his AIDS activism, appeared in Federal District Court in Brooklyn on Friday on charges of conspiring to possess methamphetamine with the intent to distribute it and possession and distribution of child pornography.
“Drug investigations have taken us down dark roads before, but nothing darker than the office practices of Dr. Wolf,” James J. Hunt, special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s New York division, said in a statement.
According to the federal complaint, the methamphetamine dealer said the 59-year-old doctor showed him videos “of infants and toddlers being sexually abused by adults.”
According to recordings of Dr. Wolf for the FBI, the dentist also poked holes in condoms during sexual encounters.
