Billy Kirkpatrick told the jury that Ross Harris said in 2013 that he was "struggling with pornography and that he needed help," according to The Atlanta Journal and Constitution. He said Ross Harris had visited sites Adult Friend Finder, Adult Sex Finder and Ashley Madison. Kirkpatrick said that despite Ross Harris's pornography addiction, he believed he was a good father. "I saw him struggle with sexual sin at the same time as I saw him being a tremendous friend to me and a tremendous father," Kirkpatrick said. "Around 2010. As close as we were, there are things that I'm going to know about in his life. It came out through discussion with him. I wasn't sure of the extent (at the time). I didn't know if he was just watching pornography or was doing something else. ... He and I would discuss it, and it became clear exactly what his issues were."
