Rising star, Jerry Harris has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for child sexual abuse image charges

Jerry Harris from hit Netflix show, ‘Cheer’, has pleaded guilty to to the crimes of coercing teenage boys to send him obscene photos and videos.

In the Federal Court in Chicago, prosecutors say the 22-year-old’s celebrity status enabled him to “persuade and entice” his young victims to engage in sexual conduct.

The cheer star was arrested in 2020 for production of child pornography and has since been in custody in Chicago for almost two years while awaiting trial and sentencing.

Prosecutors allege at the time of his arrest, Harris solicited sex from minors at cheerleading competitions.

He also allegedly solicited photos and videos from two 14-year-old brothers, after a complaint was filed.

A few months after his 2020 arrest, Harris was indicted on more charges in Florida and Texas alleging misconduct.

Earlier this year, he pleaded guilty to one count of receiving child pornography and travelling with the intention to engage in illegal sexual conduct.
