Bad news for Mendeecees Harris. The Love & Hip Hop: NY reality star’s request for a shorter prison sentence has been denied, according to a report.
Mendeecees, who is married to LHHNY cast mate Yandy Smith, is currently serving an eight-year sentence for participating in a drug operation between New York and Rochester.
In February, Mendeecees’ lawyers requested his federal drug distribution sentence be reduced to three years.
His’ lawyer, Dawn Florio, argued that he not only had a small role in the ring but also forfeited $170,000 in earnings from the reality show and volunteered at youth outreach programs before sentencing.
Prosecutors said that Mendeecees’ role was significant enough to warrant the sentence.
