“Love & Hip-Hop” Cast Member Mandeecees Harris Charged With Performing Various Sexual Acts With A Minor [VIDEO]
Yandy Smith and her boyfriend Mandeecees Harris welcomed a beautiful baby boy during the first episode of “Love & Hip-Hop’s” season 3 premiere. Everything appeared to be going good for the happy couple, now comes word Mandeecees has got himself in trouble for having an unappropriated relationship with a juvenile.
This is some REAL drama for the shows newest cast member and the charges could bring a serious jail sentence if he’s found guilty. According to reports 34-year Mandeecees Harris is being charged with performing various sexual acts with a 15-year old girl and inappropriately touching her at his former home in the Lodi community.
Prosecutors in Bergen County are alleging that Harris had oral sex with the young girl and fondled her on various occasions between September 2009 to April 2010. He ended up being arrested a few months later and officially charged with aggravated sexual assault, criminal sexual contact and child endangerment.
The case is moving pretty quickly as a jury has already been selected in the state Superior Court in Hackensack. Attorneys are scheduled to make opening remarks on January 29th. Though Harris is free on bail for now, if he gets convicted he faces up to 20 years in prison.
No word as to whether or not this will come up on the show or not. I guess we will all have to see. In the meantime, this is very unfortunate for his two children (1 with Yandy and another from a previous relationship) who may have to grow up without him if he goes to prison. As a new mom, this I’m sure is the last thing Yany needs for her new son.
Let’s see if they address this on the show.
