*After a nearly two-week trial, the German girl-band singer accused of having unprotected sex with her ex-boyfriend despite knowing she was infected with HIV has been found guilty.

News agency ddp reported the Darmstadt administrative court on Thursday handed 28-year-old Nadja Benaissa a two-year suspended sentence for the charge of causing bodily harm.

Benaissa, a former member of the band No Angels, reportedly helped her case during the trial by acknowledging that her sexual behavior was a big mistake.

In an emotional statement she told the court she was “sorry from the bottom of my heart.”

The man who claimed Benaissa infected him said they had a three-month relationship at the beginning of 2004.
