A change of plea hearing has been set for next month in the case of a Terre Haute woman accused of sexual misconduct with a minor and hiding her HIV status.

The case began in March of 2017 when Lisa Marie Custer, who was 21 at the time, was charged with two felony counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and one felony count of failure to warn a sexual partner of her status as a carrier of a dangerous communicable disease.

Indiana law requires carriers of AIDS, HIV and/or Hepatitis B to warn sexual partners.

Custer was placed on In-Home Detention in April of 2017 but ended up back in jail following an alleged escape attempt. The escape added another felony to her list of charges.

According to court records,a plea agreement was filed in both cases on April 2. A court date scheduled to begin Monday was vacated, and a change of plea hearing was set for May 13.
