Legal Troubles

This is not the first time Sherman has faced legal issues.

Sherman eventually pleaded guilty to one count of negligent driving and one count of criminal trespass for the incident, receiving a 90-day sentence, most of which was suspended. He was also sentenced to monitored supervision for 24 months in March 2022 as part of that deal. It remains unclear how this recent arrest might be impacted by his previous legal troubles.
