One boy called Jerry Harris “relentless.”
He told authorities he met the star of the Netflix docuseries “Cheer” this summer — and that Harris spent three straight hours asking for naked photos of him after the boy told him he was 17. He said Harris finally offered him money, sending him $100 in “good faith” that allegedly turned into thousands.
Now the feds say Harris has admitted to having anal and oral sex with a 15-year-old at a cheer event last year, trying to persuade another minor to engage in oral sex with him at cheerleading events, soliciting a third minor for sex and seeking and receiving child pornography on Snapchat from 10 to 15 others he knew were underage.
The shocking alleged admissions by Harris, 21, are documented in a 28-page criminal complaint charging Harris with production of child pornography that was unsealed upon his arrest Thursday morning by the FBI. Harris is in federal custody, and prosecutors told a judge they aim to keep him there, calling him a danger to the community.
