Newark - A former New York City radio personality has appeared in federal court to face charges for trying to transport a 7-year-old girl to the US Virgin Islands for sex.

David Herman has been in custody since his arrest last month. His attorney may seek to have him released on bail, but didn't do so on Wednesday.

The 77-year-old Herman was a rock DJ at WNEW in New York. He was handcuffed and wore a yellow prison jumpsuit during Wednesday's court appearance, and appeared to be crying as he looked into the gallery.
