This time it’s John Conner, III, a dance coach who appears on Lifetime network reality show ‘Bring It’.
Connor posed for the mugshot above after he was arrested after having sexual relations with a minor and ALLEGEDLY exposing his victim to HIV. He even hit social media to explain his situation.
John Connor III, a Memphis dance coach, was arrested after police say he had sex with one of his minor students and exposing him to HIV.
Connor admitted back in August that he was HIV positive and suicidal in another long rant posted to facebook (CLICK HERE if you missed that). It seems while he posted his status on social media, he apparently neglected to inform his partners.
WREG reports, Connor met the victim on a social website last year and arranged to meet up, according to the affidavit.
They had unprotected sex, but Conner did not tell the victim he has HIV, according to the affidavit.
The two had unprotected sex several times and also sent each other texts that included nude photos and discussion of sexual activity, according to the affidavit.
The victim was 16 when it happened, and Conner was 26, police said.
Conner was arrested Friday and charged with criminal exposure to HIV, soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor and statutory rape by an authority figure.
Connor hit Facebook last night to explain himself, stating:
For those who no me no my truth and for those who don’t know me are subject to believe what you here or read. Well I am asking those that no me to make those who don’t aware of the type of person I am and the character I have. Yes I have been accused of something that is so not true and yes I turned myself in as soon as I heard I was being looked for. Notice I said I turned myself in. I have nothing to run from or hold my head down for. I am a child of God first and I’m human second. But at all times I love me and my freedom too much to have done what I have been accused of. Does it hurt,yes, does it touch me of course, but will it get me down. NO WAY. This is just another test I have to go through and another one that I will past. I just ask that when you see the posts,the comments from fake pages, the news, or even your next door neighbor and they say things about me. Ask yourself do I know him and them ME and if you don’t ask someone that does and remember just cause people know my face from TV don’t mean they no ME.
