Mistrial for former officer accused of not telling partners about HIV status


A Palm Beach County jury declared it could not reach a verdict in the case of a former Greenacres police officer charged with having sex with women without informing them of his HIV-positive status.

Forty-one-year-old Ervans Saintclair faced two-counts of uniformed HIV infected sexual intercourse.

Saintclair was released from the Greenacres Police department in 2014 when investigators began looking into several allegations from alleged victims.

Thursday afternoon, Circuit Judge Samantha Schlosberg Feuer declared a mistrial in the case.

Attorney’s waved the 90 days allowed following a mistrial.

A new trial date is set for January 29, 2018 at 9 a.m.

Saintclair faces 3 other similar charges in a separate case.

That case is up for a status check on December 18.

Saintclair will remain on pre-trial release.
