Man arrested in failure to disclose his HIV status to partners

Orange County deputies say 44-year-old Alcid Jean had sex with women and never told them he had HIV.

He's facing five counts of an unlawful act referencing sexual transmitted disease.

He went before a judge Friday morning for his first appearance.

He told the judge he will hire his own attorney.

His bond was set at $2,500. According to the arrest warrant, Jean is employed with Disney.

The report says he was arrested at his job Thursday.

The address for his place of employment is listed as Disney's Old Key West Resort.

A representative with Disney said Jean has been placed on unpaid leave pending the outcome of his charges.

The Disney representative did not answer News 6's questions about Jean's employment time with the company or his duties.

News 6 has requested the incident report to learn more details and what led up to the arrest. 

Pulse inspires comic book honored at MegaCon

A comic book designed to honor the memory of those who lost their lives in the Pulse Nightclub shooting took center stage at MegaCon Friday night.

MegaCon is an annual convention that draws thousands of fans of comic books, science fiction and gaming. It's taking place at the Orange County Convention Center.

The comic book that took the spotlight on Friday is called Love is Love.

It was curated by Marc Andreyko, who told News 6 he knew he had to do something when he saw what had happened in Orlando.

"Five hours later, 70 people said they were in," he said. "Then, I called DC Comics, and Diane Nelson, the president of DC Entertainment, said, 'Whatever you need. You can use our characters.'"

The result was a comic book that shared short stories of love, family and strength.

One of the pages included the artwork of Christopher "Dru" Leinonen, who was one of the 49 people killed in the attack. His mother, Christine, attended a reception for the comic book on Friday night.

"Christopher used to put the 'selfie doodles' on his whiteboard at work," she said.

His selfie doodles are small pictures Leinonen used to draw of himself.

"This is him. This is what he thinks of himself -- smiling, riding a bike, lounging and chilling," she said. "So this is what Christopher thinks of himself."

Many original pieces from the book were on display at the reception with plans to auction them off on Saturday night.

Andreyko said even though Wonder Woman and Superman are featured in the book, he doesn't think they are the heroes that need to be honored.

"These families are my heroes," she said. "To be able to see people that this helps ease their pain? It's the biggest honor that you could ever hope for." 

Avalon Park woman finds her car on blocks, stripped of tires

An Avalon Park woman woke up Friday morning to find her car on blocks and missing all four tires.

The victim said she found her Honda Accord stripped and posted about the incident on Facebook.

"Well, this is what we woke up to this morning. To the thief: You can clearly see I have two car seats in my backseat. My babies have a doctor's appointment today. Thank God, we have another vehicle. Police are on their way," she wrote.

The victim didn't want to speak to News 6 on camera.

The wheels were stolen sometime overnight Thursday into Friday morning on Tanja King Boulevard, the victim told News 6.

She said the car was locked and nothing else was stolen.

Neighbors were shocked to learn about the theft, especially since it happened on a busy road in Avalon Park.

"I live around the corner. I didn't realize it was that close. It's pretty sad to see it's that close to our house," neighbor Mo Khalil said.

The victim told News 6 she didn't have fancy wheels on her car. They were stock tires and wheels that came with the vehicle. Each wheel is worth $500.

She thinks that is why her tires were targeted.

"It happens often for that specific car, the Honda Accord Sport, I believe is what they said [on Facebook]. I guess people are specifically targeting this type of car, so you should look out if you have that car," Khalil said.

Neighbors are disturbed by the crime, especially since the thieves went after a mother with her child seats in the car.

"To do that to a mother obviously is beyond awful. And out on a busy road like this, that takes a lot of guts I guess to do that," Khalil said.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office is investigating the theft. The victim said deputies dusted her vehicle for fingerprints and took the lug nuts the thieves left behind for evidence.

The victim's post on social media is getting a lot of reaction. Many neighbors said they can't believe this kind of crime has targeted their community.


"Obviously you never want to see anything like this in your neighborhood, especially a neighborhood as nice as this. So it's just really bad," Khalil said. "This road is so busy, even in the middle of the night. Somebody hopefully saw something."


Woman accused of killing husband in hospital found dead, deputies say

A Palm Coast woman accused of killing her husband in his hospital bed last year died Thursday, Flagler County deputies said.

Jan Sochalski, 62, was found dead inside her home on Ethan Allen Drive and is believed to have died of natural causes, according to deputies.

Deputies said Sochalski had an extensive medical history and do not suspect foul play to be a factor in her death.

Daytona Beach police said Sochalski, a retired nurse who stuck by her husband's bedside for months until his death last May, pressed the button on the pain-medication machine he was hooked up to 264 times in eights hours, according to an arrest report. Daytona Beach police said the button should only have been pressed six times an hour.

"The only thing I can think of is, she's going in front of her real judge and jury right now," Sheriff Mike Chitwood said. "She's answering to a much higher authority than the courts here on Earth.”

Police said Henry Sochalski suffocated, and investigators also said a nurse saw what appeared to be Sochalski pinching the victim's nose.

"He just went in there for back surgery, and he was not expected to succumb to those injuries," Jimmie Flynt, of Daytona Beach Police Department, said.

Sochalski was arrested last August and her trial was scheduled to begin in August.
