Former pro wrestler Andre Davis was sentenced to 32 years in prison in Ohio yesterday for having sex with a dozen women and either failing to disclose that he was HIV positive or lying about it. Davis blames sex addiction for his promiscuity and claims he didn’t disclose his HIV test results because he didn’t want his family to know. “Sex addiction is probably the worst addiction you could ever have. Drugs and alcohol are terrible, but sex is something everybody wants," said Davis at the trial. "I never did a drug in my life, I’m a social drinker, but those things mean nothing to me—sex was it.” His attorney, Greg Cohen, says an appeal will be filed. The judge cited medical privacy laws in refusing Cohen's request to bring up whether any of the women concerned were actually infected with HIV. Davis wrestled on the independent circuit under the names "Gangsta of Love" and "Sweet Sexy Sensation." He tried out for World Wrestling Entertainment in July 2009, but wasn't hired because of his failure to pass a physical and his positive HIV test.
