TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A Tallahassee woman has been sentenced three years in prison for having sex with a minor and infecting a person with HIV.

Dana Rosier, 34, plead no contest to one count of sexual activity with a 16 or 17 year old and one count of unlawfully infecting a person with HIV on April 23, according to court documents.

As part of her plea, Rosier has been sentenced to three years in the Department of Corrections for each charge. Those sentences will be served concurrently followed by five years of sexual offender probation.

At maximum, Rosier would have been facing 15 years in prison for sexual activity with a 16 or 17 year old and 30 years for unlawfully infecting a person with HIV.

According to court documents, Rosier knowingly and regularly had sex with a 17-year-old from April 2017 to July 2017, with some of the sex acts being captured on camera. The victim, who was 17 at the time, told investigators that Rosier knew the victim was 17 years old and told the victim that she didn't care.

When investigators talked to Rosier, she told them that "she was not currently sexually active because she is HIV positive." However, the victim told police that Rosier denied being HIV positive when asked before they had sex the first time and didn't know Rosier's actual HIV status.

In September 2017, investigators confirmed that Rosier was HIV positive and charged her voluntary transmission of HIV. That charge was consolidated into one count of unlawfully infecting a person with HIV.


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A woman is facing felony charges, accused of having sex with a teen without informing the victim that she was HIV positive.

Dana Rosier, 32, was taken into custody on Sept. 25, for additional charges.

According to a probable cause document, Rosier knowingly had sex with a 17-year-old from April to July of this year. 

The victim told police that they had had sexual intercourse several times, providing investigators with videos as proof. Though the woman in the video had her face covered the entire time, investigators believed that the woman in the video was Rosier.

The victim also told them that Rosier knew the teen was 17, but she stated she didn't care.

When investigators talked to Rosier, she told them that "she was not currently sexually active because she is HIV positive." Documents say she denied having any sexual or inappropriate contact with the victim.

However, the victim told police that Rosier denied being HIV positive when asked before they had sex the first time.

Rosier, who was only charged with unlawful sexual activity with a minor age 16 or 17 at the time, turned herself in on Sept. 7.

Later, investigators were able to confirm that Rosier was indeed HIV positive and charged her with voluntary transmission of HIV. On Monday, Rosier was taken into custody again.

As of now, she remains in the Leon County Jail.

According to court documents, Rosier plead not guilty to unlawful sexual activity with a minor.
