Mendeecee Harris Takes the Stand in Own Defenseby Jacky Jasper
Indicted sexual predator/pimp and star of VH1′s “Love & Hip Hop” took the stand today to testify in his own defense. Something that most seasoned attorneys will advise their clients against doing.
Here is what our Friends at the North Jersey, Cliffview Pilot are reporting from their exclusive coverage of the trial.
“No. No way. No, no,” he said as his attorney, Brian Neary, asked Harris whether he was guilty of any of the charges against him.
“I never had a relationship with her, she never extended herself,” said Harris, taking the stand in his own defense. “She didn’t play basketball, she didn’t play Playstation, didn’t want to go to the movies.
“She always walked around the house like she had an attitude,” he said.
“That’s the truth – never, never – I never committed none of them acts to that girl in my life.”
Smith was among those who listened intently as Harris testified in the Hackensack courtroom.
He insisted that he was living in Lodi with the victim, her mother and their three boys in order to protect his $50,000 down payment on the house after discovering his name wasn’t on the deed.
“I told her we need to either sell the house or you need to give me my down payment out,” Harris said. “My stuff was in boxes in the hallway for months.”
At that point, he insisted, he and the woman were just friends – including when she leased an apartment on Prospect Street in Hackensack and gave him a key in order to help him out.
“She offered that service,” Harris said, “because I had to get out of the relationship with Mendeecees’ mom…. She put the apartment in her name and she didn’t have a key, didn’t live there.”
“She put her credit on the line?” Maurice asked him.
“Yes, yes, she did that – absolutely,” he said. “Anything to impress me, she would do. She bought me a mink coat as a friend.” Read the Full Story Here!
