An HIV positive woman who bit a store clerk during a robbery in Boyle County entered a guilty plea Thursday morning.

Victoria Spoonamore took a plea agreement. She pleaded guilty to robbery and wanton endangerment, in exchange for a 12 year prison sentence.

Police say on September 11th of last year, Spoonamore grabbed cash out of the register at the Chill Quick Stop Convenience Store in Danville. The clerk spotted the robbery and tried to stop Spoonamore.

Surveillance video showed Spoonamore biting the clerk while screaming that she had AIDS. Because of her medical condition, Spoonamore was originally charged with attempted murder, but that charge did not stand.

The clerk has been tested and did not test positive for HIV.

Spoonamore will be formally sentenced on April 8th.
