Love & Hip Hop cast member Mendeecees Harris is back in these streets with his boo Yandy Smith. Harris has been incarcerated since January 2013, but that all changed when Yandy Smith posted $200k of the $600k that for his bond. He’s waiting on his trial stemming from his drug trafficking charges.
With VH1 cameras waiting outside of federal court Monday, as Love & Hip Hop NY films for its next season, U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci Jr. agreed to release Harris on a $600,000 bond package — half of which was provided in court. He was released later from the Yates County Jail, where he has been held.
Harris, 35, is accused of a role in a New York City-based drug ring that included his brother, Tyrus Harris, and another man, Ronald Walker. Tyrus Harris pleaded guilty before Geraci Monday, and Walker pleaded guilty last year.
The drug ring transported cocaine to the Rochester region, federal authorities allege. Tyrus Harris faces a sentence of about five to seven years, under federal sentencing recommendations.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Frank Sherman and Mendeecees Harris' lawyer, Donald Thompson, said in court Monday that they've been working toward a resolution with the case. The bail agreement, Sherman said, is expected to be substantial enough to ensure Harris returns for future court dates.
Smith, who is engaged to Harris and who is one of the bigger stars of the show, said after court that she has no worries about the $200,000 pledge.
"Mendeecees is a very good guy," said Smith, who was once on the list of Billboard Magazine's "Top 30 Executives under 30."
