‘Cheer’ star Jerry Harris assaulted 15-year-old in public bathroom, feds allege

Federal prosecutors say “Cheer” star Jerry Harris has “exploited and violated” at least 10 boys, “exhibits all the signs of a serial child predator” and should stay behind bars.

They also allege that Harris sexually assaulted a 15-year-old boy in an unlocked public bathroom at a cheer event “with other individuals coming and going” — suggesting either that he “wanted to be caught or he simply cannot control his impulses.”

The claims appear in a nine-page memo filed Tuesday ahead of a detention hearing for Harris, who was arrested by the FBI nearly a month ago and charged with production of child pornography. The memo also alleges Harris destroyed his cellphone upon learning of the investigation — and then continued to “victimize minor boys” with a new one.

Harris, 21, is being held at the downtown Metropolitan Correctional Center, prison records show.

Though the original criminal complaint filed against Harris alleged he had admitted having anal and oral sex with a 15-year-old at a cheer event last year, Tuesday’s memo from Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Parente adds new detail and says law enforcement has interviewed the victim. It also hints that more criminal charges could be filed against Harris.

Last month’s complaint also alleged the Netflix docuseries star tried to persuade another minor to engage in oral sex with him at cheerleading events, solicited a third minor for sex, and sought and received child pornography on Snapchat from 10 to 15 others he knew were underage.

Harris is scheduled to appear for a detention hearing Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Heather McShain. Parente’s memo suggests Harris’ legal team will be proposing Harris be monitored by multiple third-party custodians cycling in and out of his home. Harris’ lawyer Todd Pugh did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment, though.

But to ensure the results are as you hoped, you’ll want to do some planning ahead of time. Take these five steps before contacting a pro.

1. Plan Your Design

While professional bathroom remodelers will be able to help you make structural decisions, it’s wise for you to know ahead of time what you’d like the end result to look like. Do a little brainstorming to come up with concrete ideas, like, “I’d like a freestanding tub and separate shower,” or “I prefer a pedestal sink to a drop-in model.”

Browse sites like Pinterest for inspiration as to layout, aesthetics, and materials. Save some photos to show your contractor and point out what you like about them.

2. Determine The Contractors You’ll Need

You might think one firm can come in and tackle your entire bathroom remodel. While some can, it is better in many instances to hire a few specialty contractors. Contrary to popular belief, this can actually save money and increase the longevity of your remodel.

So, first think about who you will need: a custom millworker, plumber, bath fitter, etc.

3. Look Into Necessary Permits

Small-scale bathroom remodels most likely won’t call for any permits. However, large-scale projects may require building permits, which you can obtain through your local government offices.

Also, keep in mind that many local governments require electrical wiring

Architect turns an auto-rickshaw into portable home with bedroom, bathroom & kitchen

Netizens are gushing over a tiny auto-rickshaw house that has gone viral on various social media platforms. An auto-rickshaw has been modified by an architect to fit a bedroom, a bathroom, and a kitchen in a tiny little space of just 36 square feet, which is now winning the internet’s praise. The three-wheeler structure named Solo 01 is designed by Arun Prabhu N G, founder, and architect of the Billboards Collective, and it comes with a portable/detachable housing unit that can accommodate a single individual. 

 

 

Super stoked to finally reveal a project that has been in the works! SOLO 01.A stunning, utilitarian design of a Portable / Detachable housing system.Unveiling our first prototype !As Clare Booth said “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” Land, especially in the urban areas has always been considered a valuable commodity – an idea Mark Twain captured in his simple quote, “Buy land, they aren’t making it anymore.” This along with the current economic scenario has lead to the tiny house movement catching up all over the world and downsizing is the norm. Well for some communities, even a house that size could be a boon. Though unspoken about, small scale architecture is the most relevant in India and is often scrutinized for being underutilized in terms of space. Our vision is to shine a light on how to constantly improve the way of life of people around us without space or budget as parameters. SOLO: 01 is our first step towards achieving that goal concentrating on temporary and portable housing concepts in India. It is a utilitarian design of a compact 6’x 6′ space into a portable/detachable housing unit that can accommodate a solo individual like an artist, traveler, homeless people or even a small scale vendor. This is designed keeping in mind the

Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Is Available in San Rafael, CA – Press Release

Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Is Available in San Rafael, CA

It does not matter if a homeowner has plans to sell, or if they are ready for an all-new kitchen, remodeling a kitchen is a huge job. In fact, the average price tag on an entirely new kitchen is around $22K. With so much money on the line, the right remodeling companies must be found. Some tips that will help ensure the right professional service is found and used are listed here.

Consider Working with Specialized Professionals

Many general contractors can handle any kitchen remodel project, from beginning to end. For many people, this may sound like the best option. However, these companies do not specialize in any one part of the remodeling process.

That means that each element may not show off the high-quality results a homeowner was searching for. However, with more specialized service providers, such as Granite Transformations, this is a non-issue. By hiring these specialized companies, a person will receive high-quality results that are desired.

Find Out About the Project Timeline 

Some homeowners choose a contractor based on the fastest timeline for project completion. The issue with this is that contractors know about this. As a result, they may intentionally underestimate how long the project will take to get the business.

A good way to avoid this issue is by speaking to a few different companies about the time estimates provided for the project. Try to avoid any company that has a much shorter timeline without a viable reason – such as a bigger crew. It is also smart to be wary of any contractor who will not or cannot provide a timeline range.

Roth wants to make sure Jeremy and Andrea’s bathroom is extra special, so she decides to give them the convenience of both a shower and bath in a wet room. But to make this wet room work, she knows she’ll need the right tile design.

Roth picks a gorgeous slate tile to go on the floor and reach up the wall, then chooses a plain white subway tile for the rest of the space. However, when it comes time to install the subway tile, it’s set in a staggered pattern that Roth realizes could compete with the herringbone pattern nearby.

“The herringbone is the ‘wow’ factor,” Roth says. “That floor, that slate, that’s going to have that beautiful pattern. That’s where I want the pattern to be, not with this white tile.”

She has the tile redone, this time in a stacked pattern, which gives the walls a cleaner look. In the
