German popstar Nadja Benaissa was given a two-year suspended sentence, for infecting a former partner with HIV by
having unprotected sex with him.

Benaissa, 28, a member of the band No Angels, had admitted to not informing the now-34 year old man that she was HIV positive during their relationship.

Prosecutor Peter Liesenfeld had called for a two-year suspended sentence for grievous bodily harm during closing arguments in the trial of 28-year-old singer Nadja Benaissa, a high-profile case that Aids groups fear could harm their cause.
