Man sentenced in assault that left girl with HIV

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

An HIV-positive Dallas man has been sentenced to 75 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl who became infected with the virus. 

Matthew Louis Reese was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty earlier to charges that include sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault. The 31-year-old Reese could face additional prison time Thursday when a judge considers his punishment on another count of assault. 

Investigators say Reese had a sexual relationship with the girl and passed the virus to her. The now-17-year-old girl testified she would not have been with Reese if he told her about his HIV status. At least two others testified during Reese's trial that he never told them prior to having sex that he carried the virus that causes AIDS. 

An attorney for Reese declined comment.
