A few months ago we reported that a professional wrestler infected a lot of women with HIV. Yesterday we found out that  he was sentenced to 32 years for having sex with 11 women and giving them HIV. Andre Davis, 29 who wrestled under the stage names “Gangsta of Love” and “Sweet Sexy Sensation” was convicted of felonious assault, reports the Straight From The A. READ MORE

A jury on Wednesday convicted a former professional wrestler of 14 felonious assault counts alleging he had sex with women without telling them he had tested positive for the virus that causes AIDS. Hamilton County jurors deliberated over two days before returning the verdict against Andre Davis, of Cincinnati.

 Prosecutors said the 29-year-old Davis, who wrestled using stage names including Gangsta of Love, Sweet Sexy Sensation and Andre Heart, violated state law by not telling a dozen sex partners about his HIV status or lying to them.
Davis’ attorney, Greg Cohen, told WLWT-TV he would appeal the verdict. He said 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.”

 

All 12 of the women who accused Davis testified that they had unprotected sex with him and he either never told them or lied about HIV, which can be transmitted through unprotected sex.

The judge, citing medical privacy laws, prohibited attorneys from bringing up whether any of the women was infected with the virus. Prosecutor Amy Tranter told WLWT that the case involved a great deal of testimony and that jurors considered evidence “step by step.” READ MORE

A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that tested over 8,000 people in 21 cities, found that one in FIVE gay men in the United States has HIV, and almost half of those who carry the virus are unaware that they are infected.

According to the study, the risk is highest among young, sexually active men and minority groups(black people) because they are least likely to know their health status, while the rate has fallen for heterosexuals and intravenous drug users. READ MORE
