Rhoades v. State of Iowa (Iowa Supreme Court June 13, 2014)

Court and Agency Decisions and Orders (including case law)

On June 13, 2014, the Iowa Supreme Court set aside the conviction of Nick Rhoades, a man living with HIV who was initially sentenced to 25 years in prison, with required registration as a sex offender, after having a one-time sexual encounter with another man during which they used a condom. The Center for HIV Law and Policy filed a friend-of-the-court (amicus) brief in this case.
