Man from texas sentenced to jail after infecting girl with HIV

A 31-year-old Dallas man with HIV who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl was sentenced to at least 75 years in prison on Wednesday for the assault and infecting her with the virus, reports Reuters according to court officials sources.

Prosecutors had been seeking a 95-year sentence for Matthew Louis Reese, saying he knowingly infected the girl with HIV and did not tell her he had the virus.

Reese could receive additional time in prison when his hearing resumes on Thursday, the Dallas Morning News reported.

According to Reuters, Reese pleaded guilty on Tuesday to charges of aggravated assault on a child with a deadly weapon, aggravated sexual assault with serious bodily injury and sexual assault of a child.
