May admits pot possession and speeding

By GAYLE COULTER State Journal Staff Writer Published:

Herman May, freed from prison on the basis of DNA evidence in a rape case, has pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of marijuana and three charges of speeding.

May's appearance in Franklin District Court Tuesday wrapped up a string of misdemeanor charges he accumulated since his release from prison that included possession of marijuana, driving under the influence, shoplifting and speeding.

"We're all done," said May's attorney Jerry Anderson.

For pleading guilty to possession of marijuana, May was sentenced by Franklin District Judge Guy Hart to two $100 fines.

May lost 12 points for pleading guilty to speeding when he drove 21, 17 and 26 miles over the limit, Anderson said, and will lose his driver's license for at least a year.
