Federal authorities say they arrested a seminary man from Mississippi.

Harvey is alleged to have traveled to Alabama with the intent to engage in a sexual act with a five-year-old boy who lived with relatives in Fort Rucker, Alabama.

Harvey is being held by Federal Marshals on charges that he traveled to Alabama with the intent of engaging in a sexual act with a child.

Authorities are planning to extradite him to southeast Alabama.

If convicted of the charges, Harvey could be sentenced to fines of up to $250,000, plus imprisonment of any term of years, life in prison or both.
