SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say a man convicted of sexually abusing multiple people while he knew he was infected with HIV died at the Oregon State Penitentiary. The state Department of Corrections said Monday that 59-year-old Andrew Lee Boyer died Sunday. His earliest release date was August 2048. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports he was convicted in 1998 in Yamhill County of sodomy and sex abuse involving four boys ages 12 to 18.
