HSK Exclusive – The trial has begun for Mandeecees Harris, over charges he molested an underage girl. You may remember that he Love & Hip Hop cast member is charged with performing various sexual acts with a 15-year-old girl and inappropriately touching her at his former home in Lodi, New Jersey. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
Bergen County prosecutors allege that Harris asked for and received oral sex from the girl and fondled her on various occasions between September 2009 and April 2010. He was arrested later that year and charged with aggravated sexual assault, criminal sexual contact and child endangerment.
This news comes one day after sources say Mendeecees Harris turned himself in over outstanding drug charges. Though details surrounding that case remain sketchy, Circuit Court Of Maryland records prove there’s an ongoing case involving Harris and two other charged male suspects.
Mendeecees Harris does have a criminal history in Maryland, dating back to 2001. That’s when the Love & Hip Hop cast member was sentenced to four-years in prison and three-months probation – after being found guilty of distributing cocaine. We can’t confirm if Harris completed that sentence – as those court records appear to be sealed. Sources allege Harris was working with federal authorities.
