Alleged Atlanta pastor Craig Lamar Davis has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for knowingly exposing a woman to HIV.

The sentence handed down by Clayton County Superior Court Judge Geronda Carter was half of the maximum time Davis could have faced on the two counts of reckless HIV, according to the AJC. As we previously reported, a Clayton jury found Davis guilty of the two counts on January 21.

The woman who brought the case against Davis, Ronita McAfee, said she was pleased with the sentence. While McAfee has not tested positive for HIV, she continues to receive medical treatment as if she has the virus. She testified that the case has affected her and her family deeply saying that she became deeply depressed and immobile after learning Davis had HIV. She told the court she became too distraught to care for her children and was not able to graduate from college in 2012 because she was unable to focus on anything else but the case.

Davis still faces a similar court case in Fulton County involving a woman who did contract HIV, allegedly from Davis.
