CORALVILLE — A Coralville man who was previously convicted of transmitting HIV faces 25 years in prison for failing to disclose he has HIV to his sexual partner.

According to a criminal complaint, 34-year-old Adam D. Musser engaged in sexual activity with the victim in June and July. Police said Musser told the woman he was disease-free and did not need to use protection. Musser knew he was infected with HIV, police said.

Musser has been arrested and faces one count of criminal transmission of an infectious disease to another person, a Class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison.

According to court records, Musser was sentenced to 50 years in prison in 2004 for four counts of criminal transmission of HIV. He filed multiple appeals of his sentence, but those appeals were overturned. He was released from prison in October 2012, according to Department of Corrections records.
