Smith was convicted this month and has filed an appeal.

During the trial, a Regina woman and another woman from British Columbia testified that he said he had unprotected sex with them even though he knew he was HIV-positive, something he never told

Smith, who played for Saskatchewan from 1998-05, said that wasn't true, but the judge said he believed the women.
