In the continuing saga of hoodrat television, yet another participant in the Love & Hip Hop franchise is facing criminal charges.
Mendeecees Harris, who viewers have come to know walking the thin line between freedom and incarceration, has now definitely taken the plunge…
Into the ditch.
Harris was just sentenced for federal drug trafficking charges to the tune of 8 years and 1 month, plus 5 more years of supervised release. The sentence stems from coke and heroin dealing and he has already paid back $100,000, which he earned from his Love & Hip Hop stint.
Mendeecees had this to say after his court sentencing through a post to his Instagram account.
“I completely accept responsibility for all that is going on…”
I want you all to understand something. I completely accept responsibility for all that is going on. My transition to be a better person a productive person started well before this case. However in my past I made some bad decisions. Young men let my life be an example to you now before it's too late. Better who you are now in your children's lives and in society so you can change the path of your fate. Lack of opportunities, a fatherless home, the unforgiven neighborhood and circumstances you grew up in can no longer be your excuse. Trust me I tried. And it doesn't make the pain your family feels any different. Young man educate your self and break the cycle. Don't become a number on the DOA (dead on arrival) list or on the incarceration list. To my wife and children you are all strong and well prepared for this. This is just another brick laid down towards our house of happily ever after , walk with your head held high knowing I would never past the buck and put another family through what we have endured. Continue to walk in faith and love as you've done so well. To my peoples thank you for all the encouragement and support please continue to encourage my family. Thank you again all.
It looks like the franchise now has a slot to fill.
