Mendeecees Harris Denied Early Release from Federal Prison

VH1 got wind of the court case and reports that Mendeecees’ request for early release was denied. His sentence is upheld despite the details released on his good deeds done behind bars.

VH1 writes:

a U.S. District judge refused Mendeecees’ request to have his federal drug trafficking sentence reduced from 8 years to 5 years. His lawyer, Dawn Florio, noted that a change in federal sentencing guidelines meant there might be an opportunity to reduce the original sentence given back in December 2015. Florio argued that the Harlem
native’s role in the drug ring was only minor, and on top of that, Mendeecees has turned in over $170,000 in restitution and even met with youth organizations four times a week to pay back his debt to society.

That apparently wasn’t enough to sway the courts. Though this is certainly sad news for the Harris family, Mendeecees has accepted the consequences of his crimes and shared the lessons he’s learned along the way

 

Mendeecees’ anticipated prison release year is 2023.

    Look at that karma already starting to kick in. Serves them right after they spent the whole season slandering people and lying about everything.

    So I guess all the damage control him and Yandy were doing was a waste. No need to worry about keeping your family image and protecting your spot on a reality show when you will be in prison for 8 years.

    This is unfortunate for the kids but they are the only ones I feel sorry for. Yandy and Mendeecees really turned me off.

    I hate seeing any black men in jail, but I will say I’m not sad about this. Drugs ruin our communities & his poor behavior since being in jail signify that he hasn’t learned his lesson to be a decent human being.

    You never win when you play dirty. It’s sad his kids won’t get to have them in their lives for eight years but this is the outcome of being in the streets. It’s just not worth it.
