Atlanta — A Georgia man will spend the next 10 years in prison for using Craigslist to arrange sexual encounters with at least two different women without revealing he was HIV-positive.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that 24-year-old James Allen Propes was found guilty on two counts of reckless conduct by an HIV-infected person.
The Gwinnett County District Attorney's Office says Judge Tom Davis called Propes "an evil person" during sentencing Friday.
The district attorney in a news release says two victims filed reports about Propes in 2014. Both said they met him on Craigslist, had sex with him and "later found out that he was HIV positive by finding an article online that he had been charged and convicted of a similar transaction in another state."
Propes was charged in previous incidents in Oregon and Indiana.
