Former SDSU student pleads guilty to HIV exposure

       BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) _ A former South Dakota State University student has pleaded guilty to one count of intentionally exposing another person to the virus that causes AIDS.
 
       Demetrius Colaites, age 19, admitted not using a condom during consensual sex with another student who did not know Colaites was HIV-positive. Prosecutors dropped other charges against Colaites as part of a plea deal.
 
       Colaites faces up to 15 years in prison when he's sentenced Feb. 25. Brookings County State's Attorney Clyde Calhoon says prosecutors will recommend that Colaites serve six years.
