GA man convicted of failing to disclose HIV status

Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) - A metro Atlanta man has been convicted of reckless conduct after he failed to tell a sexual partner he had been previously diagnosed as HIV-positive.

Craig Davis, of Stone Mountain, was convicted Tuesday in Clayton County Court. Attorneys for 42-year-old Davis say he may have been misdiagnosed and argued that tests for the virus can be unreliable and don't provide definitive proof of his status.

In court, Davis' primary care physician Dr. Courtney Shelton said she diagnosed him with HIV in 2005 and that he used prescription medications to manage the symptoms.

Clayton County jail officials also said that in 2009, Davis told them he was HIV positive and had medications with him when he was booked.
