ELKHORN, WI (WTAQ) - A southern Wisconsin woman is suing for $350,000 from an old boyfriend who allegedly gave her herpes when they had sex earlier this year.

The 33-year-old woman is from Delevan. She filed suit in Walworth County against a 35-year-old Edgerton man.

According to the lawsuit, the couple had a relationship in the late 1990’s. But both were married to other people when they spent the day together in Madison in January of this year.

The lawsuit said the two had sex in Janesville that night – and when she learned in May that she contracted genital herpes, she asked police to arrest the man. He responded by saying that he didn’t transfer the disease, and she should check with her other sex partners. But the woman said her only partners were the defendant and her husband of eight years.

In the lawsuit, the woman also said the man told her husband in February that he did not take medicines to treat his herpes – and that could have lowered the risk of transmitting the disease.
