Host of "The Dave Herman Rock And Roll Morning Show" from 1972 to 1998 charged with attempting to meet 7-year-old girl in Virgin Islands for sex
Dave Herman, who spun tunes for nearly 30 years on New York classic rock station WNEW, was charged Thursday with traveling to the Virgin Islands to have sex with a 7-year-old girl.
Herman, 77, of Airmont, N.Y., who also owns a home on St. Croix, was arrested by federal agents at the airport in St. Croix, where he expected to meet the girl, authorities said. He is scheduled to appear in federal court in St. Croix on Friday.
Herman allegedly started chatting on Yahoo! last November with an undercover officer from the Bergen County Prosecutors Office, whom he believed was "Kris," a 36-year-old single mother, federal authorities said.
The conversations continued over the following months, with Herman speaking on the telephone and chatting online with the woman and indicating his desire to engage in sexual activity with her daughter, "Lexi," authorities said.
Herman told the officer that "age 6 is the perfect time to start her being loved that way" and that he found "girls that age incredibly sexy, soft, and their innocence is also a huge turn on for me," according to the criminal complaint filed in connection with the case.
He promised the woman that he would not hurt her daughter, but that he might have to be forceful with her and ply her with alcohol, authorities allege.
Herman allegedly -- and unsuccessfully -- attempted to arrange sexual encounters with the child in New York and in Bergen County.
Earlier this year, Herman suggested that he fly the woman and her daughter to St. Croix, where he would take the girls virginity, authorities said. On Sept. 30, he bought tickets for the faux mother and daughter.
Herman is charged with attempting Herman is charged with attempting to transport a minor in interstate commerce with the intent that the minor engage in sexual activity, a charge that carries a minimum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Herman hosted the The Dave Herman Rock And Roll Morning Show for 27 years on WNEW, from 1972 until 1998.
Most of the same details tho also says he had a vacation home in St Croix (US Virgin Islands) where they could meet and he was waiting at airport with a stuffed animal for her. Sir there is no 7 yr old girl—and you have the right to remain silent...
Saw his picture in the paper this morning.
He is wearing an OBAMA hat.
yeah he is a sick folk
Sick pervert needs to be removed from society. I wonder how many times he hasn’t been caught?
yeah someone on twitter said there’s a file photo in the Post of that; I’m not in NY and don’t have the paper but the hat was apparently cropped out of pic on site. But yeah it figures.
Ironic timing - I was watching the follow up documentary on the Roman Polanski case on Showtime last night. What a cluster***k the legal system made of it in LA. And listening to the Polanski supporters who were surprised at the reaction to them when they decried the arrest of him in 2009 by Swiss authorities . . . tone deaf to the maximum.
yup—yeah Post online only showed his face from just under the hat to his chin
Pedophiles not only deserve the death penalty, but since they’ll always be after small children, they’ve certainly earned society’s wrath.
It’s evil enough for this nation to dispose of 4000 innocent lives daily through the Satan and Supreme Court approved destruction of innocent life, but to have one evil old man to intend to have sexual relations with a baby is so repulsive an act that it cries to God for vengeance!
Don’t lock these perverts away where they’ll feast on the visions implanted in their brains for entertainment. Send them to hell. Let Satan pay the hotel bill!
I Listened to his show in the nineties. He had a subtle way to add self righteous liberal crap to his show. Hope he gets what he deserves.
The picture I saw was in the Express Times out of Easton Pa. We are just across the Delaware in N.J. and that is our local lib rag.
I only got a brief glimpse because someone pointed it out. All of the guys in the local diner (Uncle Bucks) got a big laugh.
enjoy your trip to the ‘Virgin’ Islands? did ja.
2012 Obama lolol
screwed. well almost.
