TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – A 10-year prison sentence was handed down to an HIV-postive Terre Haute woman who pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct.

Lisa Marie Custer appeared in Vigo County Court earlier this week for the sentencing hearing. 

She was sentenced to 10 years in prison on a count of sexual misconduct with a minor, and another 2 1/2 years on a count of failure to warn of her HIV status. The sentences will run concurrently. 

According to court documents, the judge also ordered “purposeful incarceration” that will allow for a modification of the sentence following successful completion of a substance abuse treatment program. The modifications could include two years of direct placement on work release followed by home detention. 

Pursuant to a plea agreement, a second count of sexual misconduct and an escape charge were both dismissed.
