Mandeecees sentenced? There hasn’t been many updates concerning the current status of “Love and Hip Hop New York” season three star Mandeecees (Mendeecees, he uses both names apparently via court records and his Twitter account) Harris’s legal status. As we reported recently, he was found not guilty for child molestation charges, however, he still has to see his date in court for federal drug charges. He’s been locked away for several months, but some reports claimed he had been sentenced to 15 years a month ago. Yandy took to her Twitter account to shut down the rumors, and now it appears Mandeecees’ lawyer is also speaking out on his status. Despite all the gossip and difficulty it’s been to locate his current standing, it now appears there’s an answer to his whereabouts. And according to his lawyer, he hasn’t been sentenced yet, and remains in jail. Hip Hop Wired reports:

Harris’ story became a sleeper hit for season three of the show given all its twists and turns. Prior to the drug charges came allegations that the 34-year-old father s-xually abused a teen girl. He was later vindicated of wrongdoing.

Just as that debacle ended, the drug charges popped up.

The native New Yorker is accused of trafficking more than $2 million worth of coke and heroin for a decade. His brother, and another cohort have also been indicted for their roles in the alleged drug scheme.

Hip-Hop Wired reached out to Harris’ lawyer, Donald Thompson, who confirmed that he has not “been found guilty of anything yet, much less sentenced.”

    I hope it works out I don’t want to see Yandy raise her son alone or his other son to be without a father. That’s all we need is more children without fathers present in their life. Sad.

    I pray for the best, I like Mandeecee’s and because I am in that same situation its not the best situation to raise a child by yourself!

    I hope he doesn’t go to jail cause I like his little family, but I won’t be surprised if he gets sentenced to at least five years. It seems like the way the court works if they can’t get you for one thing they will get you for something else.

    I know mandeecees from our old neighborhood and i hate to say it but as far as the case of him sleeping with his ex fiancee daughter i believe it. He has always been the cute fly it guy and he loved women of all ages. He would try to talk to my friends and myself on our way home from school all the time and we were freshmans in high school at that time so from personal experience i believe it. Now i also think the young girl who spoke out against him had other motives and went along with it to hurt her mother as she said.
    Now as far as the drug case he did what he did now he has to deal with the consequences, i hope everything works out for them because for the most part he has tried to change his life and he loves his children very much. Now for Yandy i cant feel to bad for her because she knew what type of guy he was, if your from Harlem you knew how he was, so i cant pity the tears, the money keeps her around. He still to this day keeps contact with the women he continuously cheated on her with. She feels as though she won because she has the ring but he still the same Mandeecee when it comes to the ladies, i mean how can you marry a man that hasn’t divorced his first wife yet? Its bad enough knowing he had a baby right before she gave birth so honestly there relationship needs work, i do believe she loves him but i just dont feel sorry for her
