Oct. 14, 2013 – A Gainesville woman was found guilty Saturday of reckless conduct by an HIV-infected person in Hall County Superior Court.
36 year old Heather Nix was convicted of the felony for withholding knowledge of her HIV status to her then-husband and longtime partner, in violation of Georgia criminal statutes.
Nix was sentenced immediately after the trial. Nix was sentenced to the maximum 10 years, two to serve in prison and eight on probation.
Kevin Franklin testified he first learned about his ex-wife’s status, when Nix was in the hospital for an unrelated medical issue.
