Mendeecees was released last year on bond
Last year, Mendeecees was released on $600,000 bond, which his wife, Yandy Smith, paid $200,000 of at the time of his temporary release. He took a plea deal, which involves the decreased sentencing, as well as handing over all of his earnings from the reality show and any bookings following to the federal government.
Mendeecees’ involvement in the drug ring
He will now be heading back to prison to serve the full sentence, which stems from his involvement in a multimillion cocaine and heroin ring in upstate New York years ago. Him and his wife were married earlier this year.
