Ex-pro wrestler "Hardbody" Harrison was convicted by a federal jury of having eight sex slaves in his north Georgia homes.
Harrison Norris Jr. was convicted of charges including aggravated sexual abuse, forced labor, sex trafficking, conspiracy and witness tampering. He was acquitted of all charges involving a ninth woman, but still could get life in prison at sentencing, set for Feb. 28.
Norris, 41, wrestled for the now-defunct World Championship Wrestling organization in the 1990s.
Serving as his own lawyer, he contended that the women willingly lived at his Cartersville homes because they wanted to train as pro wrestlers. He says many of them arrived on drugs and left in the best shape of their lives.
Norris kept the women in line by imposing a strict military structure, assigning the women to "squads." He kept the women in shape was forcing the women to work around his houses. The women hauled trees, laid sod, and painted.
What a strange case. We wondered how Harris kept his eight slaves from running away.
Norris faces a sentence of life in prison and the possibility of becoming someone else's sex slave.
Such is Instant Karma.
