Actor pleads not guilty to child porn, sex charges


NAPERVILLE, ILL. » “Cheer” star Jerry Harris has pleaded not guilty to federal child pornograph­y charges and allegation­s that he solicited sex from minors at cheerleadi­ng competitio­ns and convinced teenage boys to send him obscene photograph­s and videos of themselves. Harris, 21, was indicted earlier this month in a seven-count indictment that included the child sex, porn and other allegation­s. A complaint filed in September initially charged him with child pornograph­y. In the original complaint, prosecutor­s said Harris admitted to FBI agents that he asked a teenage boy to send him lewd photograph­s of himself, but that he requested child pornograph­y from at least 10 to 15 others he knew to be minors via Snapchat.
