Cincinnati.com reports former professional wrestler Andre Davis was convicted Wednesday in a Hamilton, Ohio court on 14 of 15 “felonious assault” charges for failing to disclose to sexual partners that he is HIV positive.

Each felony carries a potential sentence of two to eight years in prison.

Davis also stands accused in similar cases with five women in Butler and Warren counties.

Davis’ sentence will be determined after he undergoes a psychological evaluation. Sentencing is scheduled for December 21, 2011.

The full story is available here.
Davis found out he was HIV positive in 2009 yet continued wrestling through 2010. The Wrestling Observer reports Davis was hired as a referee by WWE in 2009 but withdrew their contract offer after he underwent a battery of medical tests. Davis was wrestling in matches involving blood during that time period.

— Brian James (a/k/a Road Dogg), who now works as a producer for WWE, stated during a recent “shoot” interview that not only has the organization paid to put him in a rehabilitation center, but has paid for at least one stint for all three of his brothers—Scott, Steve and Brad.

 

Scott is WWE referee Scott Armstrong. He returned to the organization in February 2011 after being released one year prior. Steve briefly competed for WWE in 1992 as Lance Cassidy. Brad was under contract to WWE in 2006 and 2007. He made sporadic appearances on ECW as a guest commentator.

 

— Former WWE talent Sean Christopher Haire (a/k/a Sean O’Haire), 40, was arrested Wednesday afternoon in Savannah, Georgia on a simple battery charge, according to the official website of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office. Bond was set at $1,850.00.

 

This is not the former WCW World Tag Team Champion’s first run-in with the law. In 1992, Haire was arrested for assault. In 2006, Haire was found guilty of assaulting a woman at “Club Hypnotic” in June 2004. He was also involved in a fight in Hilton Head on March 30, 2007, in which he sustained fractures to his face and skull, including his orbital bone. In September 2009, Haire was arrested for allegedly choking his girlfriend.
