Jury selection is underway in the case of an Atlanta-area pastor who has been charged with knowingly exposing women to HIV. The trial is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, January 14.

Craig Lamar Davis faces two counts of reckless HIV, a felony under Georgia law punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

As we previously reported, Davis, a resident of south Fulton, was arrested in July 2012 in the parking lot of a Wendy’s after church service. He was denied bond at the first hearing  but later was granted a $30,000 bond. His wife Jan posted the $3,200 to bail him out.

Ronita McAfee of Union City told authorities that Davis had sex with her four times before telling her he was infected with HIV. Davis also faces similar charges in Fulton County involving a different woman.

Forty-two potential jurors were interviewed Monday (January 13) about their views on sex and their familiarity with the HIV virus.

Stay tuned for updates from this developing story as the case gets closer to trial.
