“The Challenge” Star Bear Sentenced To 21 Months In Jail & More For Georgia Case

Stephen bear Georgia Harrison the challenge

MTV’s “The Challenge” Star Stephen Bear isn’t having the best year as he was just handed a 21 month sentence to jail for sharing a video of him and former cast mate Georgia Harrison having intercourse without her permission!

Bear received his sentence on Friday and he was also ordered to register as a s*x offender and to not have any contact with his former costar ex for five years. He will have to keep authorities updated on where he lives for the next decade.

During the hearing, Judge Christopher Morgan said Bear “wished to exploit the economic value of the recording,” adding, “I’m sure that you recognized the enhanced economic value to you by having Georgia Harrison, a well-known reality TV, and social media personality, in the video,” per The Telegraph.

Georgia is happy to receive Justice:

Georgia Harrison said after sentencing of Stephen Bear, “I hope this puts anyone off committing this sort of crime & I hope for anyone else who’s been victim of it, it gives them some sort of justice”.

Sending our love to Georgia!
