A Barren County  man already convicted of federal charges had his sentence increased this week afer it was determined he committed perjury during the trial testimony.  57 year old Tony Glenn Harvey  was sentenced to 34 years in prison followed by a lifetime of supervised release this week, in U.S. District

Court, by Senior Judge Thomas B. Russell.   Harvey was convicted by a federal jury on August 10, 2012, following a 2 ½ day trial, on both counts of a federal indictment that charged him with transporting a

minor across state lines to engage in illegal sexual activity and brandishing a

firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. The jury deliberated just over one

hour before finding Harvey guilty.

According to evidence presented at trial, Harvey transported the child from Sidney,

Ohio, to western Barren County near Smiths Grove.  In late July 2011, Harvey took

the child to a trailer in Barren County, where he forced the child to engage in

sex.  Then in late August of 2011 Harvey again transported the child from Ohio to Barren

County, Kentucky  When she refused his advances Harvey  brandished a .22 caliber pistol and told her she deserved to die.  Harvey also threatened to hurt himself and other family members.

Harvey will forfeit to the courts, property located in Barren County.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jo E. Lawless.

The Barren County Sheriff's Office, in close association with the Federal

Bureau of Investigation, conducted the investigation.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood.
