Love & Hip Hop New York star Mendeecees took a huge hit when he was sentenced to an eight year sentence behind drug-related charges in upstate New York.
Although Mendeecees struck a plea deal, he still had to turn in his Love & Hip Hop checks, luxury vehicles, money earned for personal entertainment appearances, pay up to a $5 million fine, and be taken away from his family.
According to Bossip, Mendeecees has now filed papers asking the judge to cut his sentence by three years as he believes he’s made some big strides in the right direction while being locked up.
Mendeecees was originally sentenced to 10 years. The prosecution was fine with nine years, but the judge must’ve been feeling generous by sentencing him to only eight years.
When people get locked up, they get really creative with their get-out-of-jail early schemes, so we really aren’t mad at Mendeecees for this one.
Mendeecees had his lawyer file a motion to cut his sentence so that he can use his celebrity to teach the youth about the consequences and dangers of drug related lifestyles.
Good luck Mendeecees! The judge will rule later this month.
