(Scroll down for video) A man was who was upset to learn that he was HIV positive,took to social media to hook up with many woman and infected them with the virus.

The man from Rome, Italy, was sentenced to 24 years in prison
for infecting 32 women with HIV after having unprotected sex with them despite knowing he had the virus.

The 33-year-old accountant, Valentino Talluto, seduced dozens of women through social media for a decade before he was arrested.

Police believe he had sex with at least 53 women during that time, transmitting the virus to 32 of them.

The male partners of three of the women later contracted the virus, as did an 8-month-old baby of a fourth woman.

Talluto often found an excuse why not to use a condom, telling his partners that he was allergic to them or that he just had an HIV test, according to court records.

His victims range from just 14 to 40 years old. Some of the victims only learned that they were HIV positive when they got tested after Talluto’s arrest.

In court, Talluto expressed regret for what happened, but said he had not realized the consequences of his actions.

Prosecutors asked the court to sentence Talluto to life in prison, saying that he caused an HIV epidemic.

However, the court rejected this claim and found him guilty of grievous and incurable bodily harm instead.

Ironically, Talluto’s mother, who was an addict to drugs was, also HIV positive and she died when he was just 4 years old.
