The Final Verdict

Hot Car Dad Found Guilty Of Murdering His 22-Month-Old Son

Find out what other charges he was found guilty of.

The jury can to a verdict today. Justin Ross Harris was found guilt of murdering his 22-month-old son, Cooper, in 2014 and will be sentenced on December 5.

Harris intentionally locked Cooper in his car for seven hours while running errands. On the same day, Harris was also sexting with an underage girl plus five other women.

Instead of dropping his son off at daycare, Harris took him to work and left him in the car then drove to movies where he “realized” the toddler was still in his car seat.

In addition to the three murder convictions, Harris was found guilty on two counts of child cruelty and three counts of sending inappropriate material to two female minors.

The jury took four days to make their decision after 21 hours of deliberating.
