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 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.

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 42

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
