Your escort may have committed sexual assault causing bodily harm. To prove this you need evidence that:

1) you did not have herpes before your night with this escort,

2) the escort learned that she had herpes before that night,  and

3) the escort was the last person you slept with before testing positive for herpes.

See R. v. H.(J), 2012 ONCJ for details of a similar case. 

Good luck.
