FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) - A Fitchburg man authorities say had unprotected sex with multiple partners without telling them he was HIV positive has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Nicholas D. Guzman pleaded guilty Wednesday to three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and indecent assault and battery on a child under 14.

The 20-year-old Guzman had originally been charged with statutory rape of a child because one of his partners was 13 years old.

According to Fitchburg District Court documents, the statutory rape charge was reduced to indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, and one assault and battery charge was dropped.

The Sentinel & Enterprise (http://bit.ly/QHWULZ) reports that he was also sentenced to probation and ordered to stay away from the victims.
