Atlanta – A Georgia man will spend the next 10 years in prison for using Craigslist to arrange sexual encounters with at least two different women without revealing he was HIV-positive.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that 24-year-old James Allen Propes was found guilty on two counts of reckless conduct by an HIV-infected person.

The Gwinnett County District Attorney's Office says Judge Tom Davis called Propes "an evil person" during sentencing on Friday.

The district attorney in a news release says two victims filed reports about Propes in 2014.

Both said they met him on Craigslist, had sex with him and "later found out that he was HIV-positive by finding an article online that he had been charged and convicted of a similar transaction in another state".

Propes was charged in previous incidents in Oregon and Indiana.
