— A Raleigh man who pleaded guilty in August to charges that he failed to use a condom and notify sexual partners that he has HIV has been sentenced to six months of house arrest for violating his probation.

In addition, Joshua Waldon Weaver, 23, cannot leave his father's home for any reason other than employment approved by his probation officer. He must also wear an electronic bracelet and undergo a mental health assessment.

Weaver, who was arrested earlier this month, pleaded guilty Tuesday to violating his probation by having sex without a condom.

He was originally arrested in April on charges brought under North Carolina Administrative Code 10-41 A.02020 (1)(a)(e), which addresses control measures regarding HIV, and North Carolina General Statute 130A-144 (f), which requires all people to comply with measures controlling communicable diseases.

A DJ in Raleigh and Wilmington, Weaver pleaded guilty to those charges and received a 45-day jail sentence that was suspended and 30 months of supervised probation under the conditions that he comply with the public health laws under which he was charged.
