Mendeecees Copped To Major Drug Slinging Last Spring; Faces Up To 40 Years
Love & Hip Hop New York’s Mendeecees Harris has been given a little bit more time to enjoy life on the outside.
The admitted drug kingpin and father of two has had his sentencing hearing for drug trafficking delayed until the Fall, BOSSIP can reveal.
Harris, who earlier this year pled guilty to felony conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute, was supposed to be sentenced Aug. 31 in New York State Federal Court, but the sentencing hearing was pushed back until Oct. 2.
“It was the judge’s schedule,” Harris’ lawyer, Donald Thompson, told BOSSIP. “We didn’t have any control over it.”
The government contended that Harris helped operate a large drug dealing operation that funneled huge quantities of cocaine and heroin from New York City to upstate New York. Under his plea deal, Harris could get anywhere from five to 40 years in prison, as well as a $5 million fine.
Thompson said it wasn’t yet clear how much time Harris was going to do.
“As we get closer, we’ll have a better idea,” he said. “We don’t have anything firmed up.
In the meantime, Harris is keeping busy with work and family, Thompson said.
“He seems to be doing well,” he said. “They’re filming the new season, he’s doing a lot of public appearances.”
