A 27-year-old man, who will spend the next five years behind bars for raping a woman, collapsed after police told him the woman he assaulted had HIV.

According to the Huffington Post, Richard Thomas pleaded guilty to the rape in Liverpool Crown Court back in July.

He will find out later this week if he contracted the illness from the woman.

According to the Huffington Post, Thomas let himself into the woman’s home in the middle of the night and she woke up and found him raping her.
