— 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 arrested on a charge that he violated the terms of his probation.

Joshua Waldon Weaver, 23, was 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 in August 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.

He was also ordered to undergo a mental health and substance abuse assessment and stay away from nightclubs unless he is working.

Weaver was arrested Oct. 8 and was scheduled for a bond hearing Thursday. His probation hearing is scheduled for next Tuesday.

He was in jail Thursday under a $50,000 secured bond.
