If the person suffers damage from this - getting sick, developing an STD, etc., yes, the person that did this can be sued for negligence, intentionally giving someone else a disease. The person could seek future medical bills, lost wages, etc.
However, if the person was not harmed by this, it would still techinically be actionable, but you may have a hard time pursuing this because there are no damages.
As for criminal charges, this could be considered battery if there is damage or harm to the person.
