Love & Hip-Hop: New York star Mendeecees Harris was sentenced to eight years in prison on federal drug trafficking charges. The news comes as no surprise that he has been sentenced as he was facing very serious charges and pleaded guilty. The sentencing finally puts an end to the speculation of exactly how long the reality star will have to spend in prison.
More on the Mendeecees Harris sentence here, via Democrat & Chronicle:
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.
Earlier this year, Harris married Yandy Smith in a VH1 special, Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding. Fans later found out the wedding wasn’t completely legit and that the marriage license was never signed.
The news of Mendeecees Harris sentenced to prison is the latest blow for the power couple. Eight years sounds like a long time but they might be able to pull it off. Remy Ma and Papoose were able to do it!
No word yet on how the sentencing will impact Harris’ future on Love & Hip-Hop.
