Star of the Netflix hit series Cheer, Jerry Harris, was arrested today on charges of child pornography.
The 21 year old cheerleader reportedly enticed a 13-year-old boy to send him explicit photos and videos, an exchange that, according to federal prosecutors, began back in December 2018 on the popular social media app, Snapchat.
Harris is said to have maintained a relationship with the minor for nearly 18 months, which was ended in March 2020, according to the complaint. When asked by authorities on Monday about the nature of this relationship, Harris admitted to having exchanged explicit photos with the young boy.
Harris now faces one count of producing child pornography. He is due to make his first appearance in court in Chicago on Thursday afternoon.
