Mendeccees Harris Going to Prison! It’s official folks. Life is not getting any better for former Love & Hip Hop star Yandy Smith and her husband Mendeecees Harris. He will be spending the next 8 years in lock down in federal prison for drug trafficking and dealing. The 8 years in federal prison, however, is far less than Mendeecees was supposed to received because the prosecutor asked the judge to be easy on him.
Mendeecees Harris took a deal and pleaded guilty to numerous counts of drug trafficking, racketeering and money laundering. He pretty much snitch to get less time in the slammer. Mend confessed to federal prosecutors that he and some of his buddies transported large amount of cocaine and heroin to NYC on a regular basis.
Mendeecees Harris, a star in the popular VH1 reality series Love & Hip Hop-New York, received a 97-month prison sentence in Rochester on Tuesday for a federal drug trafficking crime.
Harris pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Rochester in April.
Harris’ plea called for a sentence of eight to 10 years in prison.
He has been free under a bail agreement in which his earnings from the show and his paid public appearances are turned over to the federal government. That amount was more than $100,000 in April but may have significantly grown since then.
Harris this year married his girlfriend Yandy Smith, who has been a continuing fixture on the reality show.
Some consider Mendeecees Harris a lucky dude for the fact that he was facing 40+ years plus $5 millions fine but only escaped with 8 years and doesn’t have to pay a dime. Regardless, this is still heartbreaking for Yandy and her kids…more black kids without their fathers.
