A Texas sex offender who infected a young family member with HIV was convicted of sexually assaulting the 15-year-old and sentenced Thursday to life in prison, the Houston Chronicle reported.
David Richard Wilson, 34, was convicted of sexual assault of a child in connection with the 2014 incident. State District Judge Maria Jackson gave Wilson the maximum sentence as recommended by the jury.
Wilson made a number of outbursts in court earlier Friday, shouting "It's not true," as Jackson read his charges.
In addition to giving the victim HIV, the girl later got pregnant and had a miscarriage, prosecutor Katie Warren said in her closing arguments.
"What's goint to happen to her when she meets the love of her life and has all of this baggage?" she asked jurors.
Wilson was previously sentenced to four years in prison for a similar incident with another 14-year-old girl, according to KHOU.
