Cheer star Jerry Harris has been ordered to pay his victims restitution of more than $136,000.

Harris was sentenced to 12 years in prison. The reality star pleaded guilty to two out of seven charges against him in his child pornography and sex abuse case, which included soliciting explicit photos and videos from a minor and traveling to meet up with a minor to engage in sexual acts.

One of his victims will receive $124,348.76, while the others will receive $3,000 each.

The star apologized to his victims after sentencing.

“To my victims, I am sorry for all the trauma my abuse has caused you,” he said per E! News. “I am ashamed as I know that I took advantage of your youth and weakness. I was wrong and selfish. I caused you harm and I do not blame anyone. I regret my decisions and I am deeply sorry.”

“You gave me ‘Moms’ after my mother died. You showed me what a real family looked like. You loved me for the person that I was,” he added. “You taught me that I wasn’t broken, and you tried to give me a space to heal. You all have provided me with kindness and inspiration through a very dark time.”
