A Rankin County man was convicted of domestic violence recently, according to District Attorney Bubba Bramlett’s office.

Edward Robert Harvey, AKA “Robby,” was found guilty on March 22, by a Rankin County Jury on one count of aggravated domestic violence.

Pearl Police responded to a possible strangulation domestic violence call on April 15, 2021, at the home of Robby; on arrival, Harvey refused to come to the door and refused to cooperate with officials. Finally, after a 30-minute standoff, Harvey surrendered to negotiators and was arrested and charged. Harvey will be sentenced by Judge Brad Mills on May 9, 2022, and will face up to 20 years.

“We want to thank the Pearl police officers and Rankin County jurors who spent countless hours on this case. Their efforts helped us get another abuser off the streets and behind bars where he will pay for the crime he committed,” said District Attorney Bubba Bramlett.
