Love & Hip Hop: NY’s Mendeecees Harris is attempting to have his prison reduced again. He was sentenced to 8 years in prison for heroin and cocaine trafficking . Next week, his attorney is has a appointment to argue that the Federal Judge erred when sentencing Harris to the 8 years.
Apparently, there has been a change in the “Sentencing Guidelines Manual” that took effect shortly before Harris’s sentence was handed out. This change in guidelines could allow the judge to consider a shorter sentence for him. Federal Prosecutors want him to serve the whole sentence. Last year, his attorneys tried to get the judge to lessen the sentence, claiming that Harris was a minor player in the transporting drug ring and that Harris’s work with mentoring the youth would have more purpose outside of the prison walls, but the judge was not hearing and left the sentence as is. No further details have been released.
