Chicago, IL - A 38-year-old man is being held on $1,000,000 bail after allegedly raping a 6-year-old girl in front of her brother.
Prosecutors allege Jerry Harris went into the bedroom of his friend’s two children back in 2010, ordered a young boy to hide under his blankets, then proceeded to rape the boy’s 6-year-old sister. The young boy witnessed the entire thing because he “peeked” from under his covers and watched the ordeal.
Harris was arrested on Friday and charged with predatory sexual assault of a child after the incident was reported to a teacher. Prosecutors told the judge Harris has eight prior felony convictions while his public defender informed the court he had five children of his own. Scary, I know. The judge must have thought so as well, and set his bond at $1 million on Saturday.
I’m hoping if the allegations are true, he sits in jail for a long time to come.
