Harris pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy in the bathroom during a cheer competition and paying a 17-year-old for explicit photos.

Harris admitted to similar conduct involving other minors besides the 15- and 17-year-olds, but prosecutors agreed to dismiss those charges as part of the plea agreement, USA Today reported.

“Harris used his celebrity and wealth to continue his exploitation of children, expanding the tools available to him to manipulate them into gratifying his seemingly insatiable sexual desires,” Assistant US Attorney Kelly Guzman wrote in her sentencing memorandum.

This comes after two 14-year-old twin boys sued Harris, now 22, accusing him of sexual abuse in September 2020.

Cheer Shame

Cheer star arrested for ‘making child porn’ as texts to boy say ‘do it naked’

They alleged that Harris sent them sexually explicit messages via text and social media, demanding they send him nude photos of themselves and even asking one of them for oral sex at a cheerleading competition.

The FBI arrested him that same month and he was charged with production of child pornography.

After Harris’ arrest, he openly talked with the FBI and admitted he had exchanged sexually explicit photos on Snapchat with at least 10 to 15 minors, had sex with a 15-year-old at a cheerleading competition, and paid a 17-year-old to send him nude photos, officials said.

In October 2020, prosecutors claimed he should not be released from jail because he is a “danger” as he allegedly “continued to victimize” minors even while he knew he was under investigation.

In December 2020, seven additional charges against Harris were filed.

These charges include four counts of sexual exploitation of children, one count of receiving and attempting to receive child pornography, one count of traveling with the attempt to engage in sexual conduct with a minor, and one count of enticement.

Harris pleaded guilty to the charges against him for child pornography on February 10, 2022.

The twins who accused Harris of sexual abuse gave statements in federal court before his sentencing, sharing how his abuse deeply affected their social life and mental health.

“I knew in my heart and soul that what Jerry was doing to me and Sam was bad,” said Charlie, one of the victims.

“But everyone was telling me that is just the way Jerry is, and that if I were ever to report him, that everyone would turn their back on me because I would have ruined the life of such an amazing person.”

Now, the twin’s mother Kristen is calling for more people in the cheerleading world to take responsibility for Harris’ crimes.

Kristen said the “entities that control all-star cheerleading were eager to ride on his coattails,” as Harris grew in fame.

Supporting Ukraine Through Purchasing Power: The Initiatives Keeping the Country’s Economy Afloat 0 173

Amidst the Russian invasion, Ukrainian creatives are launching initiatives to keep the country’s economy going by harnessing consumer power. Spend With Ukraine is one such online resource that connects consumers to Ukraine-based businesses across various industries, while the Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund allows for donations to support artists. Co-founder of Spend With Ukraine, Andrey Klen, emphasizes the importance of supporting the Ukrainian economy through purchasing decisions. He states, “Armies win battles, but economies win wars.”

Ukrainian brands are still operating and many are donating a portion of their sales to different needs to support the country. To sustain interest in supporting Ukraine through spending, increasing the visibility of these initiatives is key. As Klen says, “We want it to blow out.” These efforts not only help Ukrainian creatives but also support existing industries and provide a sense of normality in these difficult times.

Ensuring Safety and Consent in the Adult Film Industry: A Vital Discussion 0 259

One topic that may be of interest to readers in the adult film industry is the topic of workplace safety and consent.

The adult film industry, like any other industry, has a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of its workers. This includes providing a safe working environment, protecting workers from physical and emotional harm, and ensuring that all acts are consensual. However, the nature of the adult film industry can make it difficult to ensure that these standards are met. Actors and actresses may feel pressure to perform acts that they are not comfortable with, and there have been instances of abuse and exploitation in the industry.

To address these issues, it is essential for the industry to have clear guidelines and policies in place to protect the rights and safety of workers. This includes providing education and resources for performers, implementing strict consent protocols, and holding producers and directors accountable for ensuring a safe working environment.

Another important aspect of this topic is the importance of consent in adult film. Consent is a crucial aspect of any sexual encounter and must be obtained freely, enthusiastically, and without coercion. In the adult film industry, where performers are engaging in sexual acts on camera, it is especially important that consent is explicitly obtained and respected. This can be achieved through the use of consent forms and communication between performers before and during filming.

By discussing these topics, the industry can work towards creating a safer and more respectful environment for all performers and ensure that the rights and well-being of workers are protected.
