In a probation revocation trial Thursday in Eighth Judicial District Court, David Carl Harvey, 41, of Sulphur Springs, was sentenced to 75 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Harvey, who has a lengthy arrest record dating back to January, 2000, was charged twice in January of this year for Manufacture Delivery of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 more than 1-gram but less than 4-grams. One of the charges included in a Drug Free Zone.
In August of this year, Special Crimes Unit activated an arrest team that included deputies, patrol officers, and Criminal Investigators from the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office and the Sulphur Springs Police Department. The team successfully arrested Harvey at his residence on Georgia Street. The arrest team was activated due to information about weapons at the residence and the possibility of Harvey fleeing. Harvey was aware of a felony warrant issued for his arrest. Harvey did attempt to flee when officers arrived and some had entered the residence. However, he did stop at the entry door of the house when it became apparent other officers were present outside the residence.
