In Illinois, people convicted of sex offenses may be required to be tested for HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Laws on mandatory HIV/AIDS testing for sex offenses were passed based on widespread agreement that HIV/AIDS can be transmitted during sexual assault or abuse, as well as other crimes where an exchange of bodily fluids takes place.
In the United States, depending on the legal jurisdiction, mandatory HIV testing can be required for (a) persons charged with or convicted of rape, (b) individuals who engage in certain forms of assaultive behavior, (c) prison inmates, and (d) offenders placed under community supervision. Illinois currently does not require mandatory HIV tests for alleged sex offenders, but does have mandatory HIV testing laws that apply to convicted sex offenders.
