A retired New York radio personality is charged in a sting operation with trying to transport a 7-year-old girl to the U.S. Virgin Islands for sex.
Prosecutors say he thought he'd been corresponding online with a woman about her child but was actually talking to an undercover officer from Bergen County in New Jersey.
They confirm he worked at FM radio station WNEW, where he was a pioneering rock 'n' roll disc jockey.
Herman will appear Friday in court St. Croix. Prosecutors say they didn't know whether he had a lawyer. No phone listing was found for him in Airmont.
