    DEXTER, MO (CNN) -- Police say a man admitted to potentially exposing more than 300 sex partners to HIV, without telling them.

    He's accused of infecting his former live-in partner with the virus.

    David Lee Mangum was arrested late last month on a charge of recklessly infecting another person with HIV, a felony.

    Police say Mangum told them he didn't tell his partners about his HIV status because of "fear of rejection."

    Mangum, who was held on a $250,000 cash bond, was scheduled to be arraigned today in Stoddard County.

    If convicted, he could get up to life in prison.
