A member of the German pop group No Angels was arrested for allegedly having unprotected sex even though she knew she was HIV positive.
The singer, Nadja Benaissa is accused of having unprotected sex with three men from 2004 to 2006. One of the men has since tested positive for HIV.
Benaissa was arrested in Frankfurt on Saturday. She was there to give a solo performance.
No Angels is a German band that gained popularity after winning a TV talent competition in 2000. No Angels has sold over 5 million records. The band split up in December 2003 but reformed in 2007. They finished last at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest where they represented Germany with their song Disappear.
Benaissa has been charged with dangerous bodily harm. She is being detained because the judge believes that she would repeat the alleged charge if she would be released. She could face up to 10 years in prison if she is convicted.
Khalid Schroeder, manager of No Angels, refused to comment.
