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.

LHH Mendeecees Denied Shorter Sentence
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.

Kodak Black to Remain in Jail

The Florida native’s scheduled March 10 court date concluded on an unresolved note, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Kodak Black to Remain in Jail

The rapper will attend a continuation of the hearing on March 20. The March 10 hearing was held to determine if there was enough evidence to consider Kodak a “danger” to Broward County residents. He was sent back to prison after a probation report revealed that he had violated the terms of his house arrest by attending a boxing match and failing to complete a mandatory anger management course. Kodak’s probation officer Sandy Friedman told the court that she was concerned over his attitude which he displayed in recent social media posts. She cited one particular clip where Kodak is seen cursing and yelling about complying with the terms of the mandated classes. In another video, he looks into the camera and denies being late after not arriving to the class on time.

Kodak Black to Remain in Jail

Kodak’s house arrest stems from two incidents which were rolled into a plea deal. He was charged in 2015 for forcing several people into his car after he believed someone attempted to break into his house. The other incident took place when the rapper was suspected of taking part in a drug deal in the Hallandale Beach area. He was originally facing 55 years in prison but copped a plea for 5 years probation with one-year house arrest. He was accused of breaking his house arrest when he attended a boxing fight that his probation officer claims he was not granted permission for. Under the terms of his house arrest, he was only permitted to leave his home for work. His legal team claims Kodak attended the fight for work purposes. The hearing could conclude as early as March 20 and will determine if the Florida rapper will be a free man anytime soon.

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.
