Sex offender sentenced to 34 years in prison

GLASGOW — A part-time Barren County resident was sentenced to 34 years in prison this week for charges of illegal sexual activity and brandishing a firearm, a sentence enhanced by perjury during trial.

Tony Glenn Harvey, 57, was convicted Aug. 10 of transporting a minor in interstate commerce with the intent to engage in sexual activity and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. His sentence of 34 years in prison followed by a lifetime of supervised release was handed down by U.S. District Court Senior Judge Thomas B. Russell, who chose to enhance the sentence because Harvey lied during trial, according to Department of Justice spokeswoman Stephanie Collins.

It took a federal jury just over an hour to find Harvey guilty on both charges after a two and a half day trial, a press release said.

Harvey was indicted in September 2011 as part of an investigation conducted by the Barren County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

According to the investigation, Harvey transported a female relative, who was under the age of 16 at the time, from his Sidney, Ohio, home to his Smiths Grove residence, in order to compel her to have sex with him and another man.
