It looks like Love & Hip Hop’s Mendeecees will have to serve his full sentence in prison.

Yandy’s husband was appealing his eight year sentence for drug trafficking, which was denied by a U.S. District judge. He was looking to get his sentence reduced to five years.

According to Democrat and Chronicle, his lawyer Dawn Florio put in the motion after with the argument that changes in federal sentencing guidelines could change the verdict.

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.

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.
