LHH’s Mendeecees Denied Shorter Sentence

Mendeecees Harris is going to have to do all his time. The Love & Hip Hop star was denied his request to have his 8-year sentence for drug trafficking reduced.

LHH Mendeecees Denied Shorter Sentence
According to the Democrat & Chronicle, in early March, U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci Jr. denied Harris’ request to have his federal drug distribution sentence lessened by up to a third.

Harris claims that he was actually a mule, rather than a proper drug dealer, and this was not considered when he was sentenced.

Reportedly, Harris’ attorney, Dawn Florio, argued that Harris was a “minor player” in the interstate drug trafficking network he was a part of.
Reports D&C:

In her papers, she highlighted the community work performed by Harris, who pleaded guilty to the crime and forfeited $170,000 he earned from the show and public appearances while awaiting his sentencing.
As often as two to four times a week before his sentencing, Harris met with youth organizations, imploring the teenagers and kids to stay away from crime, Florio wrote.
“Youth sent about 100 letters to Harris, thanking him and relaying how inspirational his presentations were to them,” Florio wrote, noting that Harris has a job once he leaves prison. He is expected to return to the show once free.
Prosecutors responded that, while Harris was not a kingpin in the network, his role could not be considered minimal. Harris and two others admitted to the drug trafficking from 2006 to 2008, and are now in prison. The leader, Ronald Walker, received a 10-year sentence and forfeited $1.5 million, a 2012 Land Rover, and properties in Queens and Georgia.

Rapper Bobby Shmurda’s co-defendant in a Brooklyn gang conspiracy told a Manhattan judge to “suck my d–k” Wednesday, just before he was ordered jailed for more than a century.

Foul-mouthed Santino Boderick a.k.a “Cueno” unleashed a volley of curses at Justice Abraham Clott, who remained calm. “F–k yourself,” Boderick said as he demanded to be removed from the courtroom before he was given a 117½- to 130-year sentence. Clott permitted the defendant’s exit, then delivered the sentence in his absence. Boderick was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder, possession of a weapon and 20 other felonies stemming from four gang-related shootings. In September, Boderick refused a plea deal of 15 years in prison.
