Mendeecees Harris has a wedding special airing soon on VH1 with fellow “Love and Hip Hop New York” star Yandy Smith, but the reality star still has some ongoing legal issues to tackle.
Mendeecees was arrested for felony drug charges over a year ago, and he just plead guilty to the charges Tuesday afternoon.
Democrat and Chronicle writes:
Love & Hip Hop star Harris, 36, pleaded guilty to narcotics conspiracy in front of U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci Jr. It took nearly an hour for Harris to answer all of the questions related to what Geraci called “a rather complicated agreement.”
During the appearance, Harris admitted he was involved in a drug trafficking operation that between 2005 and 2012 shipped cocaine and heroin to the Rochester region.
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.
Mendeecees is facing up to ten years in prison, and/or a $15,000 to $5 million fine.
