Harvey, who at one time taught AP-level world history at the high school, was charged in May with raping a minor. Sources have said that the alleged victim is not a student at the school.
The charges in the indictment include first-degree rape, first-degree attempted rape, second-degree rape, first-degree sex abuse, endangering the welfare of a child. All but the endangering charge are felonies.
