Florida man gets 10 year in prison for infecting woman with HIV.
David Brown, 48, never told the woman he had HIV when he had sex with her, authorities have said. In fact he lied about it and said he didn’t have any STDs.
The sentence was part of a plea deal in the case.
Originally Brown was charged for infecting two women who contracted HIV – but one of those charges was dropped.
One of Brown’s victims spoke in court on Thursday in Collier County – saying she is disappointed with the plea deal because it doesn’t require Brown to register as a sex offender after he’s released from prison.
If the case had gone to trial Brown could have faced up to 30 years on a conviction for just one of the felony charges.
“He said that he had been tested recently and that he was clean of everything,” the victim told us.
