HIV-postive man sentenced to 15 years for having sex with teen

GATESVILLE - A Copperas Cove man with HIV was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Friday for having unprotected sex with a teenage boy last year.

In Oct. 2009, 26-year-old Christopher Everett met a 16-year-old boy on an adult social networking app for the i-Phone called "Grinder." The two talked on the phone, met in person and went to Everett's home in Copperas Cove.

The teen told police that they had unprotected sex and later discovered through another "Grinder" member that Everett was HIV positive.

During an interview with investigators, Everett admitted he was infected with HIV and did not inform the teen.

He pleaded guilty to Aggravated Assault with A Deadly Weapon in June, with the deadly weapon being the virus.

Everett's attorney argued for parole, because the victim's blood tests haven't tested positive for HIV.  State prosecutors said the act was like "pointing a loaded gun at someone, and then it not going off."

Everett was sentenced in the 52nd District Court to 15 years in prison and must pay a $3,000 fine.
