BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- The man dubbed the 'HIV Predator' appeared before a Supreme Court judge Wednesday, though no ruling was made on his fate.
The judge set a date for a probable cause hearing on May 6 at 2:00 p.m.
Jamestown native Nushawn Williams was convicted for knowingly infecting more than a dozen women with HIV back in the 90's. Williams is scheduled to be set free after completing his 12 year sentence, however a push is underway to keep Williams detained in a mental health facility.
State Senator Cathy Young of Olean has led the charge to keep Williams off the streets after a state psychologist determined he was not ready to be released.
The attorney general's office is pushing for Williams to be kept in custody under the New York's civil confinement law, which would force Williams to spend time in a psychiatric facility.
