A man who was found not guilty of first-degree murder by a jury last February on Monday was sentenced to six years in prison on an evading arrest conviction in the same trial.

Criminal Court Judge Rebecca Stern set the sentence after prosecutor Charlie Minor said Herman has continually committed crimes - from his juvenile days until after the murder trial.

He was arrested last October on charges that he put a gun to the head of a man and robbed him.

In the incident on Oct. 12, police said Herman came up behind Marcus Heard in the 100 block of Oneal Street and hit him with the gun.

The victim said Herman ordered him to take off his clothes, then he took his wallet containing $280. He said Herman fired two shots in the air as he left.

Four days later, the victim came to the Police Services Center and picked Herman out of a photo lineup.

Herman remains free on bond after defense attorney Mary Sullivan Moore obtained an appeal bond for him.

He is awaiting trial on the new robbery charge.

Prosecutor Minor said Herman is a validated member of the Gangster Disciples. Attorney Moore said he is only a "suspected" gang member.

Roy Exum: A Pitch Called ‘The Defector’

When Jose Fernandez was killed early Sunday morning in a boating accident, he was 24 years old yet had already lived a life much larger than almost all old men. He had spent part of a year in an unimaginably cruel Cuban prison, this when he only 14 years old and sandwiched in an inhumane cell among grown criminals. There were murders daily – in his very cell -- and nobody cared. ... (click for more)
