Police arrested a Memphis, Tennessee, dance coach last week on charges of having sex with a minor, and for knowingly exposing the teenaged boy to HIV, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Authorities on Friday charged John Conner with statutory rape, sexual exploitation of a minor, and criminal exposure to HIV.
WREG reports that Conner, 27, and the 16-year-old male victim connected on a social media website last year and arranged to meet. The television news outlet reports that Conner has been featured on Lifetime‘s reality dance show Bring It.
Conner and the teen had unprotected sex several times, but the suspect failed to tell the victim that he was diagnosed in 2012 with HIV. The two of them also exchanged nude images and sexual messages.
Conner was held on $100,000 bail, and due in court on Monday.
