Iowa man pleads guilty to lesser counts in HIV exposure case

Posted: Updated:

CORALVILLE, Iowa (AP) -- A Coralville man accused of knowingly spreading HIV has pleaded guilty to lesser counts.

34-year-old Adam Musser recently pleaded guilty to two counts of reckless exposure of a contagious disease not resulting in infection.

In exchange, prosecutors will recommend Musser be sentenced to a year in jail and receive credit for time served. Musser had been set to face trial on Oct. 25 on five counts of criminal transmission of an infectious disease.

Police say Musser had unprotected sex with two women in 2015. Police say he told both women that he was disease-free.

Musser was sentenced to a 50-year prison term in 2004 after being convicted of knowingly spreading HIV, but he was released on parole in 2012.
