ST. CROIX, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) — A retired New York radio personality has made his initial court appearance in the U.S. Virgin Islands following his arrest for allegedly attempting to set up a sexual encounter with a young girl.
David Herman did not enter a plea. He says he won't fight extradition to New Jersey on a charge of attempting to transport a minor with intent to engage in sexual acts. He faces up to life in prison.
Herman's lawyer and two supporters declined comment Friday.
The former well-known deejay lives in Airmont, New York, and St. Croix. Authorities say he exchanged online messages with an undercover agent posing as a 36-year-old woman with a young daughter and arranged for them to fly to the Virgin Islands so he could have sex with the girl.
