Love and Hip-Hop Star Mendeecees Harris Was Just Sentenced To Eight Years in Prison

Love & Hip-Hop: New York star Mendeecees Harris was sentenced to eight years in prison on federal drug trafficking charges.

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.
