In For The Long Haul
Talk about some bad news… Love and Hip Hop star Mendeecees Harris will be serving all 8 years of his drug trafficking sentence. Although Harris and his lawyers tried to convince the judge that he was only a small player in the drug ring he was involved in, he was denied a request to have his sentence reduced and now we won’t be seeing much of the Real Estate developer turned “music producer” for a while.
What’s most shocking is what the producers of Love and Hip Hop are doing next…
Love and Hip Hop
Mendeecees Harris and his wife Yandy Smith are two of the most popular cast members of VH1’s Love and Hip Hop NYC. Together they have two kids, but Yandy helps out raising the other two kids from his previous relationships.
Trouble With the Law
Mendeecees’s troubles started for him last year when he was locked up for his involvement in a interstate drug ring. Harris admitted to taking part in a 2005-2008 drug trafficking operation, but he claims he was merely a middle man.
Do the Crime, Do the Time
During that time, a confidential source said that Mendeecees delivered multiple kilos of cocaine and heroin monthly to dealers throughout New York City.
In an attempt to reduce his sentence, his lawyer tried to say that he was only a ‘mule’ and not a proper drug dealer… unfortunately the judge didn’t buy it.
