(Fort Bragg, North Carolina) An HIV-positive paratrooper pleaded guilty to assault Thursday for knowingly having unprotected sex with a male teenager he met online.

Pfc. Johnny Lamar Dalton, who is a member of the 82nd Airborne Division, entered his plea during a court-martial at Fort Bragg.

A military judge sentenced Dalton, 25, to 40 months in prison. The sentence included a reduction in rank and a dishonorable discharge.

Dalton was ordered last November not to have unprotected sex after he was found to have HIV. State law also prohibits a person infected with HIV from having sex unless condoms are used and sexual partners are notified.

Doctors discovered the 17-year-old had HIV during a routine blood test, and his mother notified the military.

Dalton also pleaded guilty to violating a direct order, aggravated assault, committing an indecent act and using marijuana.
