UPDATE: 6:15 p.m. Feb. 9, 2021: Berry Creek man has been convicted of committing Mayhem for an incident involving an ex-girlfriend in April 2020, according to Butte County District Attorney.
The judge also determined Harvey was out on bail at the time of the incident for a separate felony for a domestic violence case that happened in Yuba City in late 2019 and early 2020 involving the same victim.
The case centered on the April 2020 incident when Harvey slammed a heavy metal object through a window that hit the victim. The victim blacked out and regained consciousness to run to a neighbor for help.
When Butte County Sheriff's Deputies arrived at the scene, the victim had their upper and lower lips traumatically injured and a shattered tooth. The victim had to communicate to deputies through written notes because she could not speak.
Harvey fled the scene and was arrested months later.
The victim testified in court about this incident and the history of abuse from Harvey.
Harvey is in custody with no bail at the Butte County Jail. He appears on March 18 at 1:30 p.m. for sentencing. Harvey faces a maximum of 10 years in state prison.
