Singer Accused of* Spreading* HIV

Nadja Benaissa, a singer in the popular German girl band No Angels, has been charged with* grievous bodily harm* for having sex with 3 men and not telling them she was HIV positive.
“When I was arrested* I realized* that the way I had dealt with* the illness had been wrong. I made a big mistake. No way did I want my partner to be infected,” she said.
One of the 3 men, however, did catch* the virus. “You have created a lot of suffering* in the world,” he told Benaissa in court. His name has not been released.
No Angels have had several hit records,* and represented Germany in the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest.
