During a court sentencing, a Northwest Arkansas man admitted to purposely contracting HIV, so he could infect others with the virus. Stephen Koch pleaded guilty Monday to attempting to expose another person to HIV, possession of meth with purpose to deliver and eight counts of distributing or viewing child pornography. Koch was sentenced to 50 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction. He is also required to register as a sex offender. For a man to say he intentionally contracted HIV to infect others is something Mark Williams, an HIV survivor, thought he'd never hear about. However, this only fuels Williams to continue pushing for education efforts. "It's very irritating that people do not take the disease serious enough," said Mark Williams, HIV survivor. According to court documents, while Benton County prosecutors were searching through Koch's computer for child pornography, they discovered that he knowingly infected himself with HIV. "For somebody to have such low self esteem, and lack of worth that they would try to go out and do something that stupid is the only word I can think to use," said Williams. Williams said it's offensive that someone would do something so evil. "To want to take himself down this road, and infect other people, I just can't comprehend it," said Williams. HIV educator, Ruth Coker Burks, said Koch's actions disrespects those who've lost their life to the virus. "He was set out to destroy any and everything. It's so unfortunate and awful when people have died just tried to live with this virus," said Ruth Coker Burks, HIV educator. Williams adds Koch's actions only proves that there needs to be more education in Northwest Arkansas. "It empowers us and emboldens us to go forward because we know that our work's not yet done," said Williams. Williams is also the pastor at the Spirit of Peace NWA.The church also doubles as an HIV/AIDS testing, and information site.
