A veteran of more than 25 years as a rock DJ on New York radio has passed away.
Former WNEW-FM rock jock Dave Herman died at University Hospital in Newark after having been held in an Essex County jail on charges of attempting to have sex with a child.
NorthJersey.com reports that Herman was arrested in 2013 at a St. Croix airport where he was reportedly waiting for a woman to bring her daughter to him. The woman Herman had been communicating with was actually a detective with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, and there was no actual daughter.
According to nj1015.com, Herman bought airline tickets for the mother and daughter to travel to St. Croix on October 24. At the airport, agents from the departments of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement instead greeted Herman.
