Trouble is back for Love & Hip Hop New York cast member Mendeecess Harris as he has reportedly plead guilty to drug trafficking charges.
During the past season of Love & Hip Hop everyone became excited to learn that Deecees had been bailed out of jail by wife and fellow castmate, Yandy Smith, and the wedding planning could begin.
Of course, Deecees case hung over the couple’s heads but remained positive and even welcomed a new addition to their family, a baby girl.
Now with a huge televised wedding ceremony set to air next month on VH1, they couple now face the possibility of Mendeecees going back to jail after pleading guilty to drug trafficking charges for which he was arrested for last year.
Harris struck a plea deal in the case, and will now face 5 to 40 years in the federal pen, and/or a fine of $5 million. The feds nailed him for a drug trafficking operation that shipped cocaine and heroin to Rochester for 7 years.
Harris will remain free on bail until his sentencing in August — good thing for him … since he and Yandy are getting married next month on “Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding.” By the way, he also has to surrender all his paychecks from ‘LHH.’
That’s right, Mendeecees will have to hand over all checks and royalties he’s received from LLHH as well as club appearances totaling in over $100,000.
Time will only tell what will happen to Mendeecees and how this can effect Yandy and the family but we’re praying that no jail time will be served and he can just pay the $5 million fine.
Mendeecees trial is set for August 31st which will allow the couple to enjoy a bit of their newlywed bliss before the legal issues set in.
