Hospital sues May for $9,763 in debts

By GAYLE COULTER State Journal Staff Writer Published:

Herman May, who's been in one legal battle after another since age 17, now faces a lawsuit in Franklin Circuit Court.

Frankfort Regional Medical Center is suing May for $9,763 for services rendered through Sept. 10, 2003, according to a suit filed Thursday.

May's mother, Oletta May, said her son did not want to comment on the matter. Beth Albright is representing May in the hospital lawsuit, said Oletta May.

May was released from prison last year after DNA tests paid for through the state Innocence Project cast doubt on whether he committed a rape for which he'd served 13 years of a 20-year prison sentence.

Since his release last year, May has been arrested on a string of misdemeanor charges including shoplifting, driving under the influence, fourth-degree assault, possession of marijuana and speeding, all of which have been resolved except for an upcoming trial scheduled on the fourth-degree assault charge.

Albright was a Northern Kentucky University law student when she worked on May's case for the Kentucky Innocence Project last year.
