'L&HHNY' Mendeecees Harris Drug Sentencing Delayed Until October

Almost since the moment that fans of Love & Hip Hop New York were introduced to Mendeecees Harris he has been fighting serious charges. Harris has been linked to Yandy Smith for many years and shortly after she gave birth to their son he was arrested for drug trafficking in upstate New York. While Harris originally denied his guilt, Smith fought hard to get him released on bail, a task that took more than a year. Eventually, Harris admitted to his guilt and has been awaiting his sentencing, originally scheduled for Aug. 31. It an unexpected twist the reality star's sentencing date has been bumped up.

According to a report by Bossip, the judge in Harris' case had to change his schedule, a move that has pushed his sentencing date now back to Oct. 2. Harris was originally accused of helping to run a drug ring that trafficked cocaine and heroin between NYC and upstate NY for several years. He eventually agreed to take a plea deal that still carries with it some pretty stiff penalties. As of now Harris can be facing up to 40 years in prison and a $5 million fine. 

Smith has stayed by her man's side throughout his legal battle. In fact the duo is so solid that they married last May, just a few months after welcoming a daughter to their family. Smith has vowed to stand by Harris and to wait for him to return home to their family, which could be a minimum of five years. Obviously they are going to make the most out of the next few weeks that Harris now has, but do you really think Smith will really wait for him to rejoin their family after prison?
