DALLAS (AP) – An HIV-positive Dallas man has been sentenced to 95 years in prison over the sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl who also became infected.

A judge in Dallas on Thursday finished sentencing 31-year-old Matthew Louis Reese by ordering the prison time to be served consecutively.

Reese on Tuesday pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child with a deadly weapon, aggravated sexual assault with serious bodily injury and sexual assault of a child. The plea deal meant prison sentences of 55 years, 20 years and 20 years but a judge had to decide the terms.

Reese on Wednesday was sentenced to 75 years on two counts. He was sentenced Thursday to an additional 20 years.

The now-17-year-old girl testified she didn’t know Reese has the virus that causes AIDS.
