Netflix star Jerry Harris from the Netflix show ‘Cheer’ is reportedly under investigation by the FBI for allegedly soliciting sex from minors.

The publication reports that FBI agents searched Harris’ Naperville home yesterday as part of the investigation. A spokesperson for Harris told E!

We are confident that when the investigation is completed the true facts will be revealed.”
