JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) — A man was sentenced to 10 years in prison Friday for knowingly exposing a woman to HIV.
Craig Lamar Davis, 42, of Stone Mountain, was sentenced by a Clayton County judge. He was convicted on two counts of reckless conduct last month.
Davis is a former pastor who had unprotected sex with church members despite being married and having the virus that causes AIDS.
During a hearing, the woman who brought the case told the judge that she’s serving a life sentence because of what Davis did.
Though a prosecutor described Davis as being unrepentant, the man took the stand in a last-minute plea for mercy. Davis said he believes his actions were wrong.
