A Cincinnati jury has convicted a former professional wrestler of charges he had sex with women without telling them he had tested positive for the virus that causes AIDS.

Hamilton County jurors returned the verdict Wednesday on 14 felonious assault counts against Andre Davis, who wrestled using stage names including Gangsta of Love and Sweet Sexy Sensation.

Prosecutors say the 29-year-old Davis didn't tell a dozen sex partners about his HIV status or lied to them.

The women testified they had unprotected sex with Davis. The judge prohibited attorneys from bringing up whether any of the women was infected.

Defense attorneys challenged whether it was proved Davis was HIV-positive and suggested the women were promiscuous.

World Wrestling Entertainment told Davis in 2009 it wouldn't hire him because he failed a physical by testing positive for HIV.
