A Mississippi Man indictment by Federal Grand Jury

A Mississippi man was indicted by a federal grand jury Monday; he is accused of traveling to the Wiregrass area with the intent of engaging in sex with a child.

19-year-old Michael Harvey of Seminary was arrested last month by FBI agents and Madison County, Mississippi deputies.

Harvey is accused of engaging in sexual acts on several different occasions with a 5-year old boy who lived with relatives at Fort Rucker.

Agents say Harvey violated a federal criminal statute that prohibits anyone from engaging in a sexual act with a person under age of 12 within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.

If convicted, Harvey faces a statutory maximum penalty of life in prison.
