- Justin Ross Harris received life because he let down his son Cooper from 22 months to seven hours in a hot car. The boy from the state of Georgia died.
Harris (35) Cooper says he was completely forgotten. The jury did not believe him and thinks that intent was involved. After breakfast Harris parked his Hyundai in the parking lot of a do-it-yourself chain where he worked. Cooper actually had to be taken to the nursery but was left in the back seat.
Harris is now separated from his wife after it became clear during the investigation that he was looking for online contact with prostitutes. According to prosecutors, he would have let Cooper in the car because he wanted to be more a father. He would have watched a video on how the animals perish in overheated cars.
