This is so sad…
Mendeecees Harris Sentenced To 8 Years In Prison
Things have officially gone from bad to worse for the Harris family. Yandy Smith’s husband/fellow “Love & Hip Hop” star Mendeecees Harris has received an 8 year prison sentence for federal drug trafficking.
The news of his 8 year sentence correlates with BOSSIP’s report that federal prosecutors asked a judge to “go easy” on the reality star after he took a deal and pled guilty to felony drug trafficking and conspiracy, admitting that he and his accomplices ferried large amounts of cocaine and heroin to upstate New York.
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.
Harris was facing up to 40 years in prison and a $5 million fine.
This has got to be horrible news for Yandy and the kids.
What do YOU think about Mendeeces’ sentencing???
