Did he know he had herpes at the time and did you tell her?
When she told him did he act surprised?
Let me explain. Then you can explain it to her.If he knew that he had herpes and did not tell her and did not take any steps to protect her then she can sue him. This is a civil tort, in other words a civil wrong doing. He hurt her knowing that he was going to do so without telling her. And she can sue him for damages.As well, this can be considered to be a criminal offence. It is a form of assault. So, she can report this to the police and asked to have him charged.I suggest that is hernext step, without telling her boyfriend, she consult with a lawyer in her city face to face. If you let me know her province I can explain how she can find a lawyer.
You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.
