Jury recommends decades in prison for man in HIV-exposure case

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — A jury is recommending at least 30 years in prison for a man convicted of infecting another man with HIV and endangering four others with the disease while attending college in Missouri.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the St. Charles County jury on Friday recommended a 30-year prison term on the most serious charge against 23-year-old Michael Johnson.

Jurors convicted the former Lindenwood University student and wrestler on Thursday of one count of recklessly infecting another with HIV and four counts of recklessly risking infection of another with HIV.

Johnson’s convictions on lesser counts could bring the potential prison term to more than 60 years, if the sentences are ordered to be served one after the other.
