November 13, 2008 | LOGAN -- A Providence resident,
54, pleaded guilty on Monday to a 3rd degree felony
of drug possession and will serve 30 days in the Cache
Steve Harvey was arrested on June 6 on suspicion of
the use of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a Latter-day
Harvey asked 1st District Court Judge Thomas Willmore
to allow for him to serve the community in a more effective
way than going to jail.
"I'm sure there's something I could do that would
serve the community better than sitting in jail," said
"There is, that's not getting in trouble in the first
place," said Willmore. "A felony is a very serious charge.
That's why there will be some jail time."
Harvey also pleaded guilty to a class A misdemeanor
of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Harvey is to report to the jail on Nov. 18. He did
not have to report immediately to the jail so that he
could get paid on Nov. 17, and he will have the opportunity
to apply for work release once in the jail.
