VH1 reality star Mendeecees Harris has been sentenced to 97 months in prison after being found guilty of a federal drug trafficking crime.
Mendeecees pleaded guilty back in April, and his plea deal called for a sentence of eight to ten years and a $15,000 to $5 million fine. He was released on $600,000 bond and will now be heading back to prison to serve his full sentence.
The deal required him to turn over all the money he made from Love & Hip-Hop: New York and public appearances to the federal government, reports the Democrat And Chronicle. Mendeecees’ charges stem from his supposed involvement in a multimillion cocaine and heroin ring in upstate New York.
Earlier this year, Mendeecees married his longtime girlfriend Yandy Smith, with whom he has a child. Yandy took to Instagram to thanks fans for their support.
Thank you for your continued support. You have no idea how much your love and encouragement means. We finally have closure and are prepared and ready for all the future holds. God and love always prevails. Thank you God for family and love. 😇✊🏽 (I consider some of you I never met family😊) #resolved #prayedup #blessed Repost @yandeecees with @repostapp. ・・・ 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘 @yandysmith @mendeecees
The new season premiere of L&HH:NY airs Monday, December 14 at 8/9c on VH1.
