HAMILTON -- A Hamilton mother is facing unprecedented criminal charges after infecting her newborn child with HIV.

Police allege the woman lied to a hospital, hiding the fact she had the virus before delivering her second child last year and then failing to take other precautions to protect her child.

The child, who was born in September 2004, has been diagnosed as HIV-positive.

The 29-year-old mother was charged Thursday with failing to provide the necessities of life. She was also charged with criminal negligence causing bodily harm.
