Fort Wayne, Indiana - The United States Attorney's Office announced that a Grand Jury sitting in Fort Wayne, Indiana, returned the following Indictments on September 11, 2013:


Jovon C. Harvey, 44, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, was charged with two counts of attempted tax evasion for tax years 2007 and 2008, three counts of failure to file a tax return for tax years 2007 through 2009 and one count of wire fraud.  These charges were filed as the result of an investigation by the Internal Revenue Service.  This case has been assigned to and will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Anthony Geller.


The United States Attorney's Office emphasized that an Indictment is merely an allegation and that all persons charged are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in court.


If convicted in court, any specific sentence to be imposed will be determined by the judge after a consideration of federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
