A Meridian man has been given the maximum sentence for intentionally exposing a vulnerable person to human immunodeficiency virus.

Rencher pleaded guilty May 20 and was released on bond pending sentencing. On May 21, he was picked up on a strong arm robbery charge and has remained in custody since.
