Man Gets Prison Term For Exposing Woman To HIV
FAYETTEVILLE – An HIV-positive man who didn’t tell his girlfriend he had the condition was sentenced to 12 years in prison Thursday.

H, 33, of Washington, D.C., was also ordered to pay a $250 fee and provide a DNA sample, pay another $250 fee and register as a sex offender and have no contact with the woman.
