Love & Hip Hop’s Mendeecees Harris Locked Up On Drug Charges
Love & Hip Hop NY star Mendeecees Harris is having severe legal problems. Yandy Smith’s baby daddy has been arrested for drug trafficking on January 24. The drug charges are from a Rochester, NY court indictment but his troubles don’t stop there. He will go on trial tomorrow in New Jersey for the alleged sexual abuse of a 15-year-old girl.
He is currently sitting a New Jersey jail and will be held there until after his New Jersey case is over then he will be taken to Rochester to be arraigned on the drug charges.
According to Democrat And Chronicle:
Authorities allege that the three trafficked $2.5 million worth of drugs between 2005 and August 2012.
While court records provide few details about the criminal case against Harris and his co-defendants, Ronald Walker and Tyrus Harris, the indictment shows that authorities have already seized more than $1.5 million from safety deposit boxes connected with the case.
Also seized was nearly $407,000 worth of jewelry and watches, including a $60,000 Rolex and another $35,000 Rolex. Authorities are also pushing for the forfeiture of properties in Georgia and Baltimore.
On the sex charges:
Harris is charged with seven counts of child abuse in connection with a sexual relationship prosecutors said he had in Lodi with a 15-year-old girl from his extended family two years ago. He’s also charged with promoting prostitution.
If convicted of the charges, he would face up to 20 years in prison.
Mendeecees and Yandy have both reportedly been dropped from the reality show.
