Shortly after Cheer star and previous Navarro College cheer staff member Jerry Harris was detained on kid porn charges, Harris’ previous colleagues Gabi Butler and La’Darius Marshall have actually spoken up about the news.
On Instagram, Marshall mentioned that the current occasions surrounding Harris have actually been “gut wrenching.”
“As a victim of sexual abuse as a child, I know all too well the pain of experiencing this kind of abuse and the difficulties it can create in life after such trauma,” Marshall described, including, “I am broken to pieces to see this happen with someone close to me.”
“We must do better,” he concluded. “We must protect our children. I pray for healing for everyone involved.”
In her own Instagram post, Butler stated she was “shocked, dismayed and deeply saddened” by the current news.
She shared that though she was close to Harris, she was never ever knowledgeable about the habits of which he is being implicated. “My heart is broken,” the cheerleader concluded.
