With their new baby in tow and upcoming spin-off show on the horizon, Love & Hip Hop New York’s favorite couple just got rocked with some bad news following a recent court appearance. Mendeecees Harris just plead guilty to narcotics conspiracy and being involved in a drug trafficking operation from 2005 to 2012 that shipped cocaine and heroin to the Rochester area of NY, he took a plea deal in front of U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci that may land him in the clink for up to 10 years..
Under an agreement with federal prosecutors, Harris also turns over money from his television show and paid appearances. He’s paid after every episode airs. That money, which the federal government will keep, has totaled more than $103,000, said his attorney Donald Thompson. Harris, who is free on a $600,000 bail package, will face a sentence of 8 to 10 years in federal prison and/or a fine ranging from $15,000 to $5 million. He will also face four or five years of supervised release, Thompson said.
Harris’ co-defendants Ronald Walker, and Mendeecees Harris’ brother Tyrus Harris, previously pleaded guilty to their roles in the case. Walker is serving 10 years in federal prison. Once the case is resolved, the bail package will be returned to those who put up money and property for Harris’ release. –DAChronicle
