MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A Memphis dance coach has been arrested after authorities say he had sex with one of his students, exposing him to HIV, WREG reports.

Last year, John Conner III and the victim met on a social media website and arranged to meet up, according to the affidavit.

They had unprotected sex, but Conner did not tell the victim he was HIV positive, the affidavit also stated.

The victim was 16 at the time of the incident, and Conner was 26.

On Friday, Connor was arrested and charged with criminal exposure to HIV, soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor and statutory rape by an authority figure.

Connor has been featured on the Lifetime reality show "Bring It."
