Prosecutors, defense: no prison time for Benaissa

DARMSTADT, Germany (AP) - August 25, 2010

Both sides in closing arguments Wednesday suggested a two-year suspended sentence for 28-year-old Nadja Benaissa, a member of German girl-band No Angels.

Benaissa acknowledged in the trial that she had unprotected sex despite knowing she was HIV-positive and says she made a big mistake.

German news agency DAPD reports the man who claims Benaissa infected him says they had a three-month relationship at the beginning of 2004.

A verdict is expected Thursday. The charge could carry several years in jail.
