GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -

On March 10, a Laplace man pleaded guilty to charges of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile and intentional exposure to AIDS virus.

Barlon Cammon, 33, pleaded guilty as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors following reported sexual intercourse between Cammon and an underage male.  

Officials say between the dates of January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2013, Cammon, who knew he was infected with AIDS, engaged in sexual intercourse with an underage male in St. James Parish. Cammon failed to inform the victim he was diagnosed with AIDS before engaging in sexual activity, as is required by Louisiana law.

Cammon was sentenced to 20 years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections with credit for time served. He was also sentenced to the maximum time allowed by law - 10 years - for the charge of international exposure to the AIDS virus. This time will be served without the benefit for parole, probation, or suspension of sentence. On the charge of felony carnal knowledge, Cammon was also sentenced to the maximum amount of time allowed - 10 years - with credit for time served.

Five years of the sentence for the felony carnal knowledge charge was suspended upon his release from the DOC. He will be on five years' probation and will be required to register as a sex offender. The sentences are to run consecutive to one another and concurrent with any other sentences in other jurisdictions.

Cammon was also ordered to pay an amount of money to the victim to compensate him for his loss. The judge ordered Cammon to pay the victim $500,000 after hearing testimony from the victim, his mother, and another family member.    

According to reports, Cammon was initially arrested by the Gonzales Police Department on the above allegations, but was released on bond.

He was then arrested by the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office on the same types of charges.

SJBPSO booked Cammon on two counts of intentional exposure to AIDS virus and two counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile.
