Jerry Harris Career
He and other members of the Cheer team made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in January 2020. DeGeneres introduced Harris as the Oscars correspondent for The Ellen DeGeneres Show in February 2020. He’s known for his outlandish and exaggerated “mat speak,” a cheerleading term in which he yells and cheers on other individuals.
During the COVID-19 epidemic, he appeared as a guest on Todrick Hall’s cheerleading-themed song “Mas(k)ot” on his album Quarantine Queen.
Arrest in the year 2020 on child pornography charge
The FBI stated in September 2020 that they had a warrant out for Harris for allegedly soliciting sex from children. Harris, who was nineteen at the time, allegedly sent provocative texts asking for images and wanting sex to twin brothers who were thirteen years old at the time.
The boys’ mother initially rejected the interactions, but after another cheering instructor reportedly abused them, she became concerned that there may be a widespread climate of tolerance for sexual abuse in the sport or the corporations that regulate it. The US All-Star Federation, Varsity Spirit, and Cheer Athletics were later included as defendants in the lawsuit.
Harris was arrested by the FBI on 17 September 2020, and charged in federal court in Chicago with the creation of child pornography. According to federal court filings, Harris allegedly acknowledged soliciting and receiving graphic messages on Snapchat from people he knew were minors, as well as having oral and anal intercourse with a 15-year-old in mid-2019. Harris has been suspended from at least one company, and he is on the verge of losing a number of sponsorships.
The charges were refuted by a Harris representative “We unequivocally deny the allegations leveled against Jerry Harris, alleging incidents that occurred while he was a teenager. When the investigation is finished, we are convinced that the genuine facts will be revealed.” Monica Aldama, Harris’s cheer coach, is believed to have been saddened by his imprisonment.
Netflix issued a statement in response to his arrest “This news astounds us, as it does everyone else. Any harassment of minors is a heinous crime, and we hold the judicial system in high regard.”
On 12 December 2020, it was reported that Harris was facing seven more charges relating to incidents with four other minors between August 2017 and August 2020, including a charge relating to an alleged incident in May 2019 in which Harris traveled from Texas to Florida to have sex with a 15-year-old.
The fresh allegations were brought against Harris, and he pleaded not guilty.
