Nineteen-year-old Demetrius Colaites is charged with two counts of intentional exposure to HIV infection. He faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison on those charges.

Colaites is also charged with sexual contact with a person incapable of consent. That carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

The Brookings Register reports that Colaites is being held in jail on $20,000 bond.

    Hey queen? Weren’t you arrest for exposing several times?

    I heard charges were dropped because it was such a “tiny” case that they didn’t want to make such a big deal out of something so small.

    I could be wrong about that, but when I see “students” and “exposing” in the same headline I think of him.
