Smiths Grove, Kentucky, Man Indicted For Repeated Rapes Of Relative. SCUM!

Smiths Grove man charged with interstate sex crimes
Federal indictment accuses man of having sex with young relative, threatening to kill her

A man faces federal charges and the possibility of life in prison after being accused of having a sexual relationship with a young female relative in Barren County and threatening to kill her.

Tony Glenn Harvey, 56, was charged in an indictment returned Wednesday by a federal grand jury with transporting a minor across a state line to engage in illegal sexual activity and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

Harvey maintains residences in Smiths Grove and Sidney, Ohio, court documents show.

According to an affidavit signed Sept. 2 by Special Agent Adam Keown of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Harvey transported his juvenile relative from Sidney, Ohio, to a mobile home on Blaine Evans Road in Smiths Grove some time in late July, where he forced her to engage in sexual intercourse and oral sex with him.

For about 18 months before the alleged encounter, Harvey had talked to the girl about another person joining them for sex.

“Harvey had been engaging in sexual activity with (the girl) since she was approximately 10 years old,” the affidavit states.

That claim was made by a man who was invited to the trailer and allegedly witnessed Harvey and the girl having sex, and who would later allegedly engage in sexual intercourse and oral sex with the girl.

The second man is not identified in court records.

“The adult male claimed that the inside of the trailer was dark, that the girl kept her shirt on and he believed she was in her 20s,” the affidavit reads.

Authorities claim that Harvey brought the relative from Ohio to Barren County again on Aug. 22, and encouraged her to have sex with him on Aug. 24.

When the girl refused, Harvey brandished a .22-caliber pistol in the truck in which they traveled and told her she deserved to die, Keown claimed.

“Harvey told her he would kill himself” and another relative, the affidavit states.

On Aug. 28, the Barren County Sheriff’s Office served an emergency protective order against Harvey at the residence on Blaine Evans Road, during which Harvey admitted to having weapons on the premises and stated repeatedly he was going to lose everything, according to court documents.

Deputies asked Harvey to come to the sheriff’s office for an interview that day, but he did not show up, the affidavit said.

Deputy Ann Phelps of the sheriff’s office interviewed the girl, who described the mobile home where the sexual activity occurred and told Phelps that she had been to Kentucky about 10 times over the past year with Harvey, court documents state.

“Every trip to Kentucky would last approximately one to two weeks during which he would rape her every other day,” the affidavit claims.

Harvey is scheduled for arraignment on Oct. 5 in U.S. District Court in Bowling Green before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Goebel.

Harvey was in court Sept. 9 for a preliminary hearing and detention hearing, where he was represented by Ronald Hampton on behalf of attorney Johnny Bell of Glasgow.

A woman at Bell’s office said Thursday that neither Bell nor Hampton currently represents Harvey.

Bell filed a motion Thursday to withdraw as Harvey’s attorney, saying that Harvey has not contacted another attorney to represent him.

If convicted, Harvey faces a minimum sentence of 17 years in prison and could spend the rest of his life behind bars and be subject to a $500,000 fine. Harvey is in Warren County Regional Jail.

The Daily News does not identify victims of alleged sexual crimes.
