German pop star Nadja Benaissa told a court she was “sorry” Monday after admitting to having unprotected sex without telling her partners she was HIV positive.
The 28-year-old singer of Moroccan descent is facing between six months and 10 years in prison on charges of causing bodily harm. She was appearing at a court in Darmstadt, near Frankfurt accused of having unprotected sex without letting her lovers know she was infected.
One of her partners was subsequently confirmed as being HIV positive, according to The Sun.
The ex-member of all-female pop group No Angels was arrested last April and charged in February with having unprotected sex on five occasions between 2000 and 2004 with three people.
A verdict is due on August 26.
