If I were to make a list of people who I would consider “a danger to the community,” Trevis Smith would be at the top of the list. The former Alabama football standout and CFL linebacker was arrested in 2005 and convicted two years later of having unprotected sex with two women and not informing them he was HIV-positive. Clearly, an unbelievably sleazy guy, in a villain from an episode of “Law & Order: SVU” sort of way.
Now, the HALIFAX CHRONICLE HERALD is reporting that Smith has applied for parole and has a hearing scheduled for today. Which means that he could be back on the streets, free to spread his unique mixture of charm and sexually-transmitted disease to the women of Canada as soon as next month.
