In the first case of its kind in the state, an Orange County physician has been charged with 16 felony counts of distributing an unproven drug he claims is a breakthrough treatment for AIDS. Dr. Stephen David Herman, 54, who was arrested by state authorities in January, 1990, but not charged until Wednesday, denounced the charges Thursday as "mindless innuendoes and attacks" by city and state officials.
