A judge says “Cheer” star Jerry Harris will remain in jail while awaiting trial on child pornography charges

CHICAGO — “Cheer” star Jerry Harris will remain in jail while awaiting trial on child pornography charges, a federal judge in Chicago said Friday.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Heather McShain said it would be “virtually impossible” to ensure Harris doesn’t use the internet.

Harris, 21, of Naperville, was charged in September with producing child pornography.

He also admitted to requesting and receiving photographs of 10 to 15 other children, according to the complaint.

Four women had promised to monitor Harris if he were released from jail. But McShain said Harris would remain locked up.

“Upon learning of the investigation, (Harris) dumped his cellphone, obtained a new cellphone and continued with his same course of conduct,” McShain said. “That reveals behavior that the defendant cannot or is unwilling to control.”

“Cheer” follows the competitive cheerleading team at Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas.
