Prison for Akron woman who spread HIV to unsuspecting victims

Beacon Journal staff reportAn Akron woman was sentenced to four years in prison for having unprotected sex with two men without telling she was HIV positive.

Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Alison McCarty sentenced Sarah Barfett, 20, after she pleaded guilty to felonious assault.

Authorities say Barfett met one of her victims at a party and the other on Facebook.

McCarty said since she placed these mens’ “lives at risk” and a prison sentence was appropriate.

“I need you to understand what a menace you are,” the judge told Barfett.
