Four years ago, Lifetime’s ‘Bring It’ dance coach John Conner III was arrested after police say that the former reality star had sex with a 16 year old boy and gave the boy the HIV virus.
Now MTO News has learned that the Memphis district attorney agreed to a plea deal which gave the reality star only 9 months in jail, for those crimes.
John allegedly met a 16-year-old boy on social media. Then, according to police, he invited the child to join his Infamous Dancerettes dance troupe – which was featured on the Lifetime show ‘Bring It’.
Eventually, police say that John and the boy began a romantic relationship and the two had unprotected sex. Police allege that John infected the teenager with HIV.
This week, John cut a deal with the Memphis district attorney – and MTO News is shocked by the outcome.
The district attorney has decided that John’s crimes were “minor” and is only giving the accused HIV infecting child predator a sentence of 9 months in prison and four years probation. John must also register as a sex offender for life.
Back in November, John plead guilty to charges of criminal exposure to HIV, statutory rape by an authority figure, and solicitation of a minor.
The response on social media has been swift – and brutal. Many are offering to protest the Memphis District Attorney General Amy Weirich – and ask to have her removed from office.
