Former pro wrestler, Andre Davis, aka "Gangsta Love", was sentenced to 32 years in prison after he was convicted in November for not telling 11 of his sexual partners that he was HIV-positive, according to Cincinnati.Com. Ohio law states that anyone that tests positive for AIDS or HIV is required to tell their partners about their status.
“I am a loving and compassionate man,” Davis said Friday in front of the judge. “I am not a monster.”
Davis continued to speak to the court in an attempt to clear his name, “I was so scared to tell anyone (I was infected) because of how judgmental and how uneducated society is about this particular virus. I have been discriminated against big time.”
According to the article, Davis didn't just leave out the fact that he is HIV-positive, but in some cases he lied to the women about it when asked.
One of the women spoke out in court against Davis, "The day I found out you was HIV-positive was the scariest day of my life,” she said. “I watched you sit through this entire trial with a smile on your face. You don’t care about anyone but yourself.”
Thankfully, none of the women he slept with have tested positive for HIV yet, but a few of the women still fall within the time-table where they could be.
