Mendeecees To Be Released From Prison Before The End Of The Year
Earlier this year, we reported that Mendeecees Harris, of “Love and Hip Hop” fame would be released from prison next year.
But a new report from The Shade Room, estimates that the date might be even sooner. While Harris has already been away from his family for four years, TSR reports that he could be coming home by the end of this month or the next.
Sources state that Mendeecees is expected to be released in November but no later than December 15.
Harris was sentenced to eight years in prison after he pled guilty to drug trafficking charges in 2015. If he were released next year, he would have served over half of his sentence. Now, with the new release date, he’ll be right before the halfway mark.
As we reported earlier, Mendeecees confessed to transporting cocaine and heroin from New York City to Rochester, NY.
Harris appealed the decision but the sentence stood. At the end of the trial, he had already served 15 months in jail before he was granted bail.
Since he’s been in prison Harris has completed a substance abuse program, has taken courses on how to parent from prison, money management, health and nutrition and public speaking. Gossip in the City reported that Harris’ completion of the substance abuse program reduced his sentence by a year.
We know he’s looking forward to coming home.
In response to The Shade Room’s story, Yandy Smith, Mendeecees’ wife and mother of two of his children, commented with several heart emojis.
