Jerry Harris to Remain in Custody After Arrest on Child Pornography Charge

Netflix star Jerry Harris will remain in federal custody for the time being on child pornography charges alleging he coerced minors to send him nude photos and videos and solicited sex from boys as young as 13 at cheerleading competitions. He was charged in a criminal complaint last week with one count of production of child pornography, which carries a minimum of 15 years in prison upon conviction. Prosecutors have said they want him held without bond pending trial because he is a danger to the community and is accused of crimes of violence against children. Harris' lawyer, Todd Pugh, said he intends to argue for his release, in part because Harris has asthma and uses an inhaler and is at increased risk of contracting COVID-19 behind bars. But in a brief hearing Monday, Pugh told U.S. Magistrate Judge Sunil Harjani that they were dropping their bond request for the time being because they were still searching for a “suitable residence” and a third-party custodian for Harris should he be released. He was arrested shortly after 11 a.m. Thursday, three days after the FBI raided his home in an upscale Naperville neighborhood in the 2600 block of Evercrest Court. USA Today was the first to report on the raid and criminal investigation.
