Harvey sentenced on cocaine charges

A 21-year-old Farmville man will spend two-and-a-half years in prison for selling cocaine on numerous instances.

Javonte Harvey was recently sentenced to 23 years in prison with all but 30 months suspended in Prince Edward Circuit Court.

Harvey was charged with four counts of distribution of cocaine and two counts of distribution of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school, Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Ennis said.

“He plead guilty to … four charges of distribution of cocaine [and] one charge of distributing cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school … The other school charge [was not prosecuted] as part of the plea agreement,” Ennis said.

He said the charges surrounded four different instances where Harvey sold cocaine, totaling over two grams of the drug.

Harvey was also sentenced with probation and court costs.
