Bond was denied Friday for ‘Cheer’ star Jerry Harris. A Cook County judged ruled Harris will remain in jail while he awaits trial on child pornography charges.
Prosecutors said Harris first contacted one of the boys when he was 13, with Instagram messages show Harris asking the boy for pictures of his face and “booty.”
Harris’ attorney argues that he was a teenager himself, but still an adult when the contact began with the boy.
A motion from Harris’ attorneys filed ahead of a court hearing Wednesday argues that the mental health treatment that the 21-year-old suburban Chicago man needs is not available in federal jail. The document also said that Harris has asthma, which puts him at greater risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
