The man accused of infecting women with HIV has been indicted on more charges.

In a press release from the Frederick County State’s Attorney Office, Rudolph Smith, 34, of Frederick, Maryland, was indicted for three counts of first degree assault, three counts of reckless endangerment, and three counts of knowingly attempting to transmit HIV.

The charges stem from three more women coming forward. State’s Attorney, Charlie Smith, continues to ask women who may have more information to come forward.

Smith is already facing 12 other charges after the Frederick Police Department conducted a 21-month investigation.

“The Frederick Police Department and also the Frederick State‘s Attorney Office are interested in anyone who may have had sexual relations with Mr. Smith, to come forward and tell us their story,” said Will Cocky, communication specialist with the Frederick States Attorney’s Office. 

According to Maryland Case Search, Smith is expected to be in court in June.
