Plea Hearing Set for West Memphis Alderman Charged With Rape

JANUARY 31, 2005 - Posted at 7:45 a.m. CST

 

WEST MEMPHIS, AR - A plea hearing is set for the end of February for a West Memphis city council member and pastor accused of raping a woman after she showed him a house for sale.

Herman Coleman remains free on a $50,000 bond.  The plea hearing is to be in Crittenden County Circuit Court.

Police say the woman showed Coleman a house she was selling earlier this month and the two returned to her home to negotiate the sale.  They say Coleman left the house but returned 15 minutes later and raped the woman.

Police arrested Coleman after he turned himself in last week.  Police had been looking for him for days.
