WATERFORD, Wis. (AP) — A Waterford man is accused of failing to tell six people he was HIV-positive before having unprotected sex with them.

The Milwaukee County District Attorney says 42-year-old Jason Taufner is charged with six counts of recklessly endangering safety. He faces a maximum penalty of 84 years in prison.

The criminal complaint says one of his victims has tested HIV-positive since having sex with him.

Taufner had allegedly met four of his victims at a tattoo shop in West Allis where he was working.
