The original Love & Hip Hop franchise may be returning in two weeks with a brand new season, but one cast member may not get to watch the episodes as they air. Mendeecees Harris was sentenced today in Rochester, New York on a very serious drug trafficking charge.

The reality star (and groom of co-star Yandy Smith, thanks to VH1 sponsored live wedding ceremony) pleaded guilty to crime back in April in US District Court, and his sentence today could have had him facing years of prison time and a very hefty fine. As I was typing up this post, the Democrat & Chronicle updated its site with the judge’s ruling. Mendeecees was sentenced to serve 97 months in jail, or just over eight years to those (like myself) who aren’t mathletes.


At his April hearing, Mendeecees entered into a a very complex plea agreement, which included up to eight to ten years in jail and/or a fine that could potentially reach $5 million for his part in a ten year trafficking ring that brought millions of dollars worth of cocaine and heroin into upstate New York.

As viewers will recall, Mendeecees was freed on $600,000 bail in the spring after over a year in prison, and, at that time he had turned over more than $103,000.00 in VH1 earnings to the government for restitution. In addition to two young sons (one from a previous relationship), he and Yandy welcomed a daughter in January. We’ll keep you updated as the story unfolds.
