Singer given two years suspended in HIV sex case
German pop star Nadja Benaissa was given a two-year suspended prison term on Thursday for infecting a former partner with HIV by having unprotected sex with him, DPA reported.
Benaissa, 28, a member of the girl band No Angels which finished last of 24 bands in the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest, had admitted she did not tell the man, now 34, that she was HIV positive during their relationship in 2004.
The dangerous-bodily-harm verdict by the court in Darmstadt, south of Frankfurt, was in line with a recommendation by the prosecution.
Benaissa admitted to concealing her infection from the man, who now has HIV, and from another man who escaped infection. She said Wednesday, "I will be sorry for the rest of my life."
