CALGARY — Having unprotected sex with two young girls while infected with HIV has landed a Calgary man a five-year prison term.

But because Apay Ogouk, 30, has already spent the equivalent of 7 1/2 years custody for so-called dead time, he won’t have to serve any more custody.

Justice Charlene Anderson on Friday said Ogouk’s conduct towards his two victims warranted a sentence of three years for each victim on the charge of aggravated sexual assault, but reduced the punishment by 12 months due to the totality principle.

“Mr. Ogouk has served his sentence,” the Calgary Court of Queen’s Bench judge said.

Ogouk was arrested in August, 2010, after his picture appeared on the front page of the Calgary Sun, accompanied by the headline: “Have You Slept With This Man?”

The first victim only learned Ogouk was HIV-positive when she saw that front page.
