Reality Star Wants To Get Out Early To Help Kids Stay Out Of Drug Dealing
The federal government has fired back at Love & Hip Hop New York Mendeecees Harris’ call for a lower prison sentence.
The married father filed court docs on Halloween asking for a lighter sentence, arguing that he can change more kids lives on the outside. He said he wants to get out early to continue his work as a motivational speaker to help young people stay out of the streets and the drug dealing lifestyle.
Through a plea deal, Harris, 38, admitted that he trafficked cocaine and heroin from New York City to upstate New York for years. A judge sentenced him to eight to ten years earlier this year and he is eligible for parole in November 2020, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons. His two codefendants – one of whom is his brother – are also behind bars.
In his response to Mendeecees’ lower prison bid, acting US Attorney James P. Kennedy Jr. said there were several reasons why the judge should deny Mendeecees’ plea for less prison time. Kennedy said the court lacks the authority to reduce his sentence, Mendeecees was a major drug trafficker who needs to serve his full time and his plea deal was already very generous, according to the court papers filed Dec. 12, which were obtained by BOSSIP.
