A man already accused of raping a child is now facing an additional charge, because he may have exposed the child to AIDS, according to Lafayette Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Capt. Kip Judice.
Conwell Cormier, 29, was initially charged with aggravated rape and is accused of assaulting a child younger than 12 years old. Investigators say it happened in December in the 200 block of Beau Basin Rd.
The sheriff's office investigated for three months and the Lafayette City Marshal's Office arrested Cormier on April 1. His latest charge is intentional exposure to AIDS.
