    MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A Tennessee dance teacher who appeared on a reality TV show was sentenced Friday to nine months in prison for raping a teenage student and exposing him to HIV.

    John Conner III, 30, also was sentenced to four years of probation and he'll be placed on the sex offender registry for life, news outlets reported.

    Connor pleaded guilty in November to criminal exposure to HIV, statutory rape by an authority figure and solicitation of a minor.

    Investigators said Connor met a 16-year-old boy online in 2015 and the pair had unprotected sex several times. Connor didn't tell the boy he was diagnosed with HIV in 2012, according to authorities. The boy later tested positive for HIV.

    Conner had appeared on the Lifetime show “Bring It." The show featured Mid-South competitive dance teams, including Connor's.

    This seems weird. Had it been a girl...he would have been burned at the stake. Either way, it's still foul.

    Well considering almost 9 in 10 gay men don't think he should be prosecuted anyway, I supposed 9 months is about right for gays.

    What is the rationale given from the gay men who don't think he should be prosecuted?

    That it's HIV shaming. I'm thinking of the defense of Michael Johnson. It just seems that gay men don't think it's a requirement for HIV positive men to divulge their status before engaging in unprotected sex.

    16 is the legal age of consent in many states so we can't say he should go to jail for sleeping with this particular 16-year old and since when have people cared about sex between an authority figure and subject?

    I believe the sex was consensual and therefore its statutory rape.

    Yes. The legal age in TN is 18. I have no issue with him being sentenced. I feel it should've been longer.

    9 months? Where’s the outrage? Shade. But that registering on the sexual offenders lost for life - that’s the real sentence.

    Wait... which one is the man? LMAO

    In all seriousness, he's not bad looking but he actually seems "masculine" compared to the average black gay man. He has stylish clothes and a man bun. I know plenty of dudes that would let him massage their prostate with no saran wrap.

    Yeah. He's not my type.

    He's not bad looking but he is definitely the type who loves drama and attention.... And well... He's got that in spades evidently

    She is just a fit woman. The guy doesn't look like he's my type at all. I need to someone to fuck me who at least looks like they won't hit a Mariah Carey note when they bust a nut.

    I need a dik down from LL Cool J, not Tyler Perry.

    I guess I am late to the conversation and Ima play devil's advocate. I would argue he shouldn't have been prosecuted because he meet the minor online who misrepresented themselves as being older than what they actually were. Online dating/meeting folks is risky. He is also not really obligated to disclose that to anyone, especially someone he just meet.

    Convictions like this also disproportionately affect men of color. If he was White, he wouldn't have been charged or convicted.

    I think the time came from the non-disclosure of HIV

    If the person is 16 years old but they told you they were 21, this is still having sex with a minor. No matter what fairy tales the child tells. If a business sells alcohol to a minor using a fake ID, that business can still face penalties for selling to a minor. A minor was sold alcohol, this fact doesn't change. You could argue that because there was a fake ID involved, there is a defense. In that case, make that argument in court. Same happened in this case. I'm sure his lawyers argued that the minor misrepresented themselves, and a jury/judge rejected that defense.

    Actually, he is obligated to disclose his HIV status to all sexual partners. It's written into state laws around the country.

    "In 19 states, laws require persons who are aware that they have HIV to disclose their status to sexual partners and 12 states require disclosure to needle-sharing partners. Several states criminalize one or more behaviors that pose a low or negligible risk for HIV."
