Love and Hip Hop NY cast member Mendeecees Harris has just got a his request for reduced prison time denied. This news comes as Harris requested to have his federal drug distribution sentence cut down to three years back in February. The Love and Hip Hop star is currently serving prison sentence of 8 years that began in December 2015 for participating in a high-stakes drug operation between New York and Rochester, New York.
Harris’ lawyer, Dawn Florio, argued that her client had a small role in the ring. Florio also said that Harris forfeited $170,000 in earnings from the reality show and volunteered at youth outreach programs before sentencing, however prosecutors say Harris’ role was significant enough to warrant the sentence.
