LAS VEGAS (AP) — An ex-California police officer accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a teenage boy in southern Nevada is being charged with intentionally transmitting the AIDS virus, authorities said. Shawn Michael Shelton, 39, remained Tuesday at the Clark County jail pending a Sept. 13 preliminary hearing on charges of kidnapping, sexual assault of a minor, coercion and intentional transmission of human immunodeficiency virus. In a criminal complaint filed July 10 in Las Vegas Justice Court, prosecutors say that Shelton previously tested positive for HIV. He is accused of displaying a police badge and ordering the 14-year-old into his vehicle at a Las Vegas bus stop May 21. Authorities said he forced the boy to perform oral sex. They would not say whether the boy has tested positive for HIV. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
