There have been cases where someone has been charged when they had an STD and had consensual sexual relations with someone who was not told about the STD ahead of time.

There have also been cases where someone has successfully sued a sexual partner who gave them an STD when they knew they had the disease and did not reveal it.

Does that fully answer your question?
