‘Cheer’ Will Address Jerry Harris’ Child Pornography Arrest In Season 2

Netflix show Cheer will address the shocking arrest of Jerry Harris in the second season.

In the trailer, coach Monica Aldama saying, "I can't even process it," in reference to the Harris' arrest while another teammate says, "Everyone just felt lost."

Harris was arrested and charged in September 2020 with one count of producing child pornography for allegedly soliciting nude photos from minors. Feds say that Harris had "multiple other victims who all describe near identical criminal conduct by Harris involving the sexual exploitation of minors."

In December he was indicted on new charges alleging that he solicited sex from minors at cheerleading competitions and convinced underage teenage boys to send him lewd photographs and videos of themselves.

"This was made possible because our clients' mother initially had the courage to report Harris to the FBI and provided evidentiary proof of the manipulation, sexual harassment, abuse, and exploitation that her sons had suffered," the statement from attorneys Morgan Stewart and Sarah Klein, the attorneys of two of Harris' alleged victims, who are also brothers, read.
