MUSED Magazine- HIV Positive Wrestler Sentenced To 32 Years For Not Disclosing Status

Monday, 32 year old former professional wrestler named Andre Davis was sentenced to 32 years in prison for failing to warn 11 people that he had sexual contact with that he was HIV positive. He was convicted back in November on 14 counts of felony assaults. Each count carries a maximum sentence of eight years.

Defense attorney Greg Cohen told the judge that Davis didn’t mean to harm the victims, but the fact that Davis didn’t tell a least a dozen women about his HIV status is what the prosecutors continue to put on the table. According to the law in the state of Ohio, it you test positive for HIV, you must reveal the information before having sexual contact with that person, due to the fact that it is a potential deadly virus.

Davis failed to tell his partners, which led to his conviction.
