Cincinnati (AP) - A former professional wrestler in Ohio has been
sentenced to 32 years in prison for having sex with women without
telling them he tested positive for the virus that causes AIDS.
Andre Davis was sentenced Monday on 14 felonious assault counts.
Davis wrestled using stage names including Gangsta of Love and
Sweet Sexy Sensation.
Prosecutors argued that the 29-year-old Cincinnati man violated
state law by not telling a dozen sex partners about his HIV
status or lying to them.
Davis' attorney argued the state law regarding HIV and felonious
assault is poorly written because it doesn't require proof that
there has been harm or an attempt to commit harm.
The judge prohibited attorneys from bringing up whether any of
the women was infected.
Davis could have received over 100 years.
