Netflix Star and Biden Surrogate Sentenced to 12 Years in Prison for Child Porn and Soliciting Sex From Minors

Netflix star and Biden surrogate Jerry Harris of the show Cheer has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for child pornography and soliciting sex from minors.

Prosecutors argued that Harris used “his status as a competitive cheerleader, his social media persona, and eventually his celebrity and money, to persuade and entice” teenage victims.

After being released from prison, Harris will have eight additional years of supervised release.

Harris was initially raided by the FBI in September, 2020 after allegations made against him by 14-year-old twin brothers. The boys provided USA Today with conversations that they had with Harris in which he allegedly sent messages explicitly requesting nude photos or sex.

In one of the messages, Harris responded to a photo of the teen stretching his leg above his head.

“Do it naked and take a video and show me,” Harris wrote, with a winking emoji.

The Netflix alum admitted to repeatedly harassing a minor for graphic sexual images between December 2018 and March 2020. He was subsequently indicted on similar charges in Illinois, Florida and Texas.

Fox 5 reports, “Harris admitted to FBI agents to asking a teenage boy to send him lewd photographs of himself, and to requesting child pornography on Snapchat from at least 10 to 15 others he knew to be minors, according to the indictment.”

The Cheer docuseries followed a cheerleading team working to make it to the National Cheerleading Championship. During the 2020 presidential election, he filmed a short video with Joe Biden, encouraging young Black voters to turn out on Election Day.
