SUMTER, S.C. (WIS) - A Sumter man previously accused of inappropriate acts with children now faces additional charges of exposing people to HIV.

On Feb. 24, 26-year-old Dominique Weston was charged with two counts of exposing another to HIV.

Earlier this month, Weston was taken into custody after a witness reported finding inappropriate content on his cell phone of him with a child under the age of 6.

He was charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct, attempted lewd act with a minor, and second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. A charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct was later added after an investigation.

Police have also charged a woman acquainted with Weston after shots were fired into his vehicle following an argument on Feb. 9.

Danielle Henderson, 30, was taken into custody on Feb. 24 and charged with discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

They were both taken to the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center.

Henderson is no longer in jail.

Weston was denied bond after his most recent charges. His previous bond was $75,000, which he posted, according to court records.
