Indictment: Ga. teacher with HIV molested teen boy

ATLANTA (AP) - A south Georgia teacher accused of engaging in sex acts with a teen while knowing he was HIV-positive has been indicted by a grand jury.

A five-count indictment filed Wednesday charges 29-year-old Phillip Marquis Burns with child molestation, aggravated child molestation, reckless conduct, child enticement and criminal solicitation.

The indictment says Burns masturbated and had oral sex with a 16-year-old boy and asked another boy to send him explicit pictures of himself.

Dougherty County court clerk officials say Burns is being represented by Willie C. Weaver, who also serves as a City of Albany Municipal Court judge.

A call to Weaver was not immediately returned and a number listed for Burns was out of service.

School officials say Burns left the district before he was arrested.
