Don't think so...: Hepatitis c can be transmitted via sexual activity but it is not certain how often that happens in real life. It is therefore not a "sure thing" that one would catch hep c by having sex with a hep c carrier.

Police/ PHD: Call your local police department and you county and state public health departments. If he is intentionally doing this i hope he gets arrested.
