During his trial in Clayton County, Ga., Davis’ lawyers claimed that his HIV diagnosis was inaccurate. They suggested that Davis’ results were wrong because of his crack addiction and even brought in an expert witness to detail how HIV tests aren’t accurate.

However, prosecutors won the case by pointing out that Davis continued to take anti-viral medication to treat the virus and a Clayton county jury determined that Davis had unprotected sex with several women knowing that he was infected with HIV.

Watch Davis’s emotional testimony.

Pastor Craig Lamar Davis was said to have sat motionless as the jury read guilty verdicts in two counts of reckless HIV, both of which are felonies. Prosecutors said Davis cheated on his wife at the time with two women. He told neither of the women that he was HIV-positive. During his four-day trial Davis took the witness stand and admitted that doctors diagnosed him with the virus in 2005.
