Craig Lamar Davis’ mug shot (Fulton County Sheriff’s Office)
An Atlanta church pastor is under fire for allegedly spreading HIV among his church members. At least two victims have come forward to press charges against Pastor Craig Lamar Davis of Atlanta’s Full Gospel Baptist Church.
The shocking news went viral after it was posted on a blog by an angry church member and ex lover of the married pastor.
Davis was arrested and charged with reckless conduct after investigators discovered he was having sex with several women in the church, one of whom reportedly held a leadership position.Davis admitted to investigators that he’s HIV positive and chose to have unprotected sex with these women.
The woman who reported him, Ronita McAfee, says she met Davis on Facebook and it wasn’t long before the two started meeting at his home to have sex. McAfee made history as the first person to file charges against someone for HIV reckless conduct in Clayton County. She also filed charges against him in Fulton County.
Atlanta Police arrested Davis in the parking lot of a Wendy’s after church service on July 22. He was denied bond at the first hearing but later was granted a $30,000. His wife Jan posted the $3,200 to bail him out.
