American actor Jeremiah Harris, who was recently seen in Netflix docuseries Cheer, has been arrested for producing child pornography. As per the complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, the actor has been accused of “enticing an underage boy to produce sexually explicit videos and photos of himself.” Jerry was arrested yesterday after twin boys filed a suit alleging that the actor sent them his obscene pictures and demanded sexual favours from them.
After the FBI raid, the accused actor admitted that he asked one of the teenagers to send him pictures and videos of his private parts. Earlier, the spokesperson of Jerry denied the claims as he said, “We categorically dispute the claims made against Jerry Harris, which are alleged to have occurred when he was a teenager. We are confident that when the investigation is completed the true facts will be revealed.”
Post Jerry’s arrest, victims’ attorney released a statement, which reads, “We are grateful that the U.S. Attorney and the FBI have taken swift action to protect children by investigating, arresting and charging Jerry Harris. This was made possible because our clients’ mother had the courage to report Harris to the FBI as well as the Fort Worth Police Department and provided evidentiary proof of the manipulation, sexual harassment, abuse, and exploitation that her sons had suffered. We urge the authorities to undertake a thorough investigation of the United States All Star Federation, Varsity Spirit, and Cheer Athletics to determine which of their executives, employees, and representatives could have stopped Harris’ abuse and failed to do so.”
