A jury has acquitted “Love & Hip Hop” star Mendeecees Harris of various charges of sexual assault, child molestation, and prostitution of a 15-year-old girl.
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. If convicted, he would have faced up to 20 years in prison.
But, after approximately a week of testimony and a few hours of deliberations, a jury of his peers found Mendeecees Harris not guilty. As the verdict was read Yandy Smith jumped to her feet, shouted, and clapped along with Mendeecees’ family.
Yandy posted this via Instagram.
Mendeecees also posted a message via his Instagram that read:
The Truth always comes out in the end! Thank you for all your support and prayers.
Mendeecees Harris isn’t totally out of the woods yet. Now, his sexual assault case is done he will be arraigned on federal charges of drug trafficking.
Let me just leave one thought on your mind before you exit this post. R. Kelly was found not guilty as well…and I saw the tape. Ok…Toodles.
