KRON: An Akron man recently was sentenced to three years of probation for not telling a woman he had sex with that he is HIV-positive.

SX, 46, pleaded guilty to felonious assault, a second-degree felony. He faced up to eight years in prison.

Summit County Common Pleas Judge Alison Breaux sentenced X to probation, with several conditions, including that he provide a DNA sample, undergo mental health and substance abuse assessments, have no contact with the woman, and pay her $1,500 in restitution for her medical expenses, according to court records.

Prosecutors say X had sex with a 47-year-old woman last April and only told her afterward that he is HIV positive.

X was represented by attorney Donald Walker.
