Mendeecees, the fiance of “LAHH” star Yandy Smith pled guilty to federal drugs charges and is facing up to 10 years in prison! More inside…
Mendeecees Harris, the fiance of “LAHH” star Yandy Smith, pled guilty to drug trafficking charges Tuesday afternoon in federal court.
During his hour-long appearance before U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci Jr., he pleaded guilty to narcotics conspiracy and admitted that he was involved in a drug trafficking operation between 2005 and 2012 that shipped cocaine and heroin to the Rochester region!
It gets worse…Mendeecees is facing jail time (8 to 10 years in federal prison) and/or a fine ranging from $15,000 to $5 million. He’s also facing four or five years of supervised release. Either way, repercussions that BOTH he and Yandy will have to face since she is marrying him soon….
The judge agreed to allow Mendeecees to remain free on bail until his sentencing, which is scheduled for Aug. 31 at 3 p.m. You’ll recall that Yandy posted his $600K bail a few months ago.
FYI – Under an agreement with federal prosecutors, Mendeecees has to turn over money from his television show and paid appearances to the federal government. So far….. his attorney Donald Thompson says he’s paid back more than $103,000.
Yandy and Mendeecees have two children together (son Omere, newborn Skylar) and are set to marry on thh “LOVE & HIP HOP LIVE: THE WEDDING” special on VH1, MAY 25th AT 8:00 PM ET/PT. Sighs.
