PEARL MAN SENTENCED TO TWENTY YEARS FOR AGGRAVATED DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Rankin County, MS – Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney Bubba Bramlett announced that on Monday, May 9, 2022, Rankin County Circuit Court Judge Brad Mills sentenced Edward (Robby) Robert Harvey of Pearl to twenty years in the Mississippi Department of Corrections for the felony offense of Aggravated Domestic Violence.

Edward (Robby) Robert Harvey was found guilty by a Rankin County Jury for the felony offense of Aggravated Domestic Violence on March 22, 2022.

On April 15, 2021, Pearl Police responded to a domestic violence call at the home of Robby Harvey.  Pearl Police received information that the victim ran from the home of Robert Harvey and fled to a neighbor’s house. Upon arrival, Pearl Police immediately located the victim and ensured that she was safe.  She had several injuries including a gun barrel imprint on her forehead, severe swelling to her face, and choke marks on her neck. 

District Attorney Bubba Bramlett stated “Harvey held a gun to the victim’s head, threatened to kill her, hit her multiple times in the face with the gun, and strangled her to the point of nearly passing out. Fortunately, the victim was able to escape to her neighbor’s house, or the outcome could have been much worse. Harvey refused to cooperate with officers and after a 30-minute standoff, the Pearl Police were able to apprehend and arrest him.”   

District Attorney Bubba Bramlett added “Our prayers go out to the victim as she recovers from Harvey’s abuse. She was extremely brave and courageous to stand up against her abuser. I want to thank the Pearl Police Department for the outstanding job they did in this case. Their hard work helped secure a conviction that will prevent Harvey from harming the victim and others in the future.”
