Dad Asked 16-Year-Old Girl For Pics Of Her Breasts As His 22-Month-Old Son Was Dying In Sweltering Car
This is truly a tragic and disturbing story. A Georgia man was sexting a teenage girl while his young son was dying in a sweltering car.
On Friday, the then-16-year-old girl, now 19, gave details of her texting Justin Ross Harris, the disgraced father of the dead boy. Harris has been charged with murder in the 22-month-old boy’s death. He’s also charged with sending graphic, sexual text messages and photos of his penis to a girl for a period of several months when she was 16 and 17.
Authorities say the toddler died on June 18, 2014, after being left in the incredibly hot car for about seven hours while Harris was at his job as a web developer for Home Depot. Harris took his son Cooper out for breakfast that morning but then forgot to drop him off at daycare and went straight to work.
His defense attorneys called the death a tragic accident.
That day, Harris was texting the teenage girl from his work. At about 2 p.m., Harris asked the 16-year-old girl a pic of her breasts.
That young woman testified Friday and read from a transcript of the text conversation.
“I’m super sunburned,” she said, but then sent Harris a photo of her breast.
Harris replied, “Yummy.”
Hours later, Harris left work and pulled his dead son from the deadly hot SUV.
The woman said she met Harris online in the fall of 2013 when he responded to a comment she posted on the app Whisper stating she wanted a sexual relationship like the one in the erotic novel “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
“When it started, it was strictly sexual,” the witness said of her relationship with the 35-year-old father. “Then at times it would be like a normal conversation.”
They never met in person, but Harris knew her age and that she was in high school, the young woman told the court. She said she sent him one of her prom photos and would tell him how she was trying to choose a college.
The young woman read a transcript of their text messages in court. Harris once asked for a photo of her breasts and she replied, “I’m at school.”
From the New York Post:
They also discussed sex acts they wanted to perform together, and Harris would send her photos of his penis. A prosecutor showed four photos to the jury. She said he asked her to send him photos of her genitals “countless” times, but she never did.
“There wasn’t any pressure applied to you to participate in this, is that fair to say?” defense attorney Maddox Kilgore asked the young woman.
“Yes,” she replied.
Prosecutor Chuck Boring noted that Georgia law makes the girl’s consent irrelevant because she was a minor.
Several women have testified to having sexual relationships with Harris, online and in person, while he was married.
Harris’ wife was granted a divorce earlier this year.
