Wicahpi Herman

WORTHINGTON — A Minnesota man will be on probation for several years following an incident in which he was accused of several crimes.

Wicahpi Herman, 26, of Welch, was arrested in March on a number of charges: possession of a firearm after being convicted of a crime of violence, fifth-degree drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. He pleaded guilty to the firearm charge, with the others dismissed as part of the the plea agreement.

At the Tuesday sentencing hearing, Fifth Judicial District Judge Sherry Haley sentenced Herman to 60 months in prison, with a stay of execution in favor of five years of supervised probation. If he successfully abides by the terms of probation, Herman will not have to serve the 60 months.

Haley also ordered him to pay a $1,000 fine.
