Carlos Lamont Rose, 41, entered pleas of guilty and no contest to charges stemming from a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl which he infected with HIV.
Rose, of Madison Heights, pleaded guilty Friday in Bedford County Circuit Court to carnal knowledge of a minor and soliciting to produce child pornography. He pleaded no contest to infected sexual battery. A no contest plea means that the person does not admit guilt, but doesn’t refute the charge either. It carries the same weight as a guilty plea.
