HIV Infected Jewish Doctor Pleads Guilty To Child Molestation And Child Pornography

Atlanta, GA
An HIV positive jew, Dr. Adam Lebowitz, of Atlanta's Grady hospital entered a plea of guilty to charges of child molestation and child pornography.

The "good doctor" Lebowitz was arrested last November after stalking a fifteen year old boy on the popular Myspace website.

Lebowitz had gone to the teens home, bringing with him sleeping bags and condoms. Police later found evidence of over 100 individuals, many of them minors, to whom the doctor may have passed on the HIV virus.

Ex-Grady Doc Guilty in Child Sex Case

A former emergency room doctor at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta pleaded guilty Thursday to multiple charges stemming from sexual encounters he had with at least two underage boys while infected with HIV.

Dr. Adam Wayne Lebowitz, 48, admitted to charges of child exploitation stemming from videotapes he produced from sexual encounters with boys on two separate occasions. Lebowitz also admitted to using his computer to entice a child to engage in sexual acts.

Lebowitz was caught by authorities after a boy in Coweta County alerted his parents after the doctor contacted him via the Internet. Lebowitz was arrested when he went to the boy's house for the purpose of engaging in a sexual act. He was found with marijuana and camera equipment.

"He enticed at least two under-age boys to meet him to engage in illegal sexual activity and then videotaped the encounters. He then further victimized these boys by spreading the images of their sexual abuse over the internet, where they were, and will be, seen by untold numbers of potential predators," said U.S. Attorney David Nahmias.

Authorities said Lebowitz started communicating with a young boy in Massachusetts in 2003. After the boy turned 16, the doctor filmed a sexual encounter with the boy and sent the images out over the Internet in 2006. In late 2006, he met another underage boy for a sexual encounter and again sent the images of the abuse over the Internet.

Lebowitz met another under-age boy from Coweta County online and arranged to meet that boy for a sexual encounter. That boy, however, alerted authorities to the scheme, leading to his arrest.

Lebowitz did not inform any of the boys that he is HIV positive prior to engaging in sexual activity with them. Law enforcement authorities in Coweta and DeKalb Counties as well as federal authorities are asking any other potential victims to contact their local police and seek medical consultation.
