Charlottesville, VIRGINIA (Gov.) – A federal grand jury in Charlottesville returned an indictment yesterday against a former detective with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, who was previously assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force [ICAC], charging him with nine counts related to the sexual exploitation of minors, Acting United States Attorney Rick A. Mountcastle announced.
The indictment charges Bruce Arlie Harvey, 41, of Reva, Virginia, with three counts of transporting minors across state lines with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, three counts of interstate travel with minors with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct, two counts of production of child pornography, and one count of possession of child pornography.

The indictment alleges the criminal activity involved two minor female victims who had contact with Harvey while he worked as a karate instructor between 1998 and 2007. Harvey, a former instructor at the Virginia Tong Leong School of Karate in Madison, was arrested earlier this month via a federal criminal complaint.

The investigation is ongoing and being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Virginia State Police. Assistant United States Attorney Nancy S. Healey and Trial Attorney Lauren S. Kupersmith of the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section of the United States Department of Justice are prosecuting the case. 

A Grand Jury Indictment is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. The defendant is entitled to a fair trial with the burden on the government to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
