Mendeecees Harris Acquitted of Child Sexual Abuse ChargesFebruary 8th, 2013
Jurors in Hackensack this afternoon acquitted child molester and VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop” personality, Mendeecees Harris of sexually assaulting his teenage step-daughter by coercing her with money and other manipulation in his Lodi home when she was 15.
Harris’s troubles are far from over. Instead of going free, he was returned to the Bergen County Jail, where federal marshals have been holding him on a detainer.
He’d been free on bail pending the start of the trial, but he surrendered here last week after being named in a federal indictment out of Rochester, N.Y. that accuses him and two other men with trafficking $2.5 million worth of heroin and cocaine.
The government is expected to bring that case against him now. Arrangements are expected to be made to extradite him to New York early next week.
Harris was previously convicted of federal drug crimes and served time in Federal penitentiary in the early 200’s.
