Netflix Releases a Statement After 'Cheer' Star Jerry Harris is Arrested on Production of Child Pornography Charges

Netflix is breaking its silence after the arrest of Cheer star Jerry Harris.

On Thursday (September 17), the 21-year-old cheerleader was arrested on “production of child pornography charges,” the U.S. Attorney’s office in Chicago said.

Jerry‘s arrest comes after it was revealed earlier this month that he had “solicited sexually explicit photos and sex from minor.”

“Like everyone we are shocked by this news,” a Netflix spokesperson told ABC News in a statement. “Any abuse of minors is a terrible crime and we respect the legal process.”

Jerry is denying the allegations made against him.

Jerry
is scheduled to appear in court for a detention hearing on Monday, September 21. If convicted, Jerry could face 15 to 30 years in prison.

He is also being sued over the accusations.
