Mendeecees has filed papers this week to ask a judge to cut his eight year sentence for running a drug trafficking ring so that he can spread his anti-drug message to young kids. According to Bossip, Harris asked a judge to cut his sentence by three years and points out that he has accomplished a lot behind bars. His lawyer said as a condition of his release on bail, he used his celebrity status as a cast member of ‘Love & Hip Hop’ to reach out young people and warn them of dangers of his old drug-running lifestyle through presentations to various community organizations, often two to four times a week. Last year, Harris struck a plea deal in the criminal case accusing him of running a drug ring in upstate New York. The prosecutors accused the reality star of shipping more than $2.5 million dollars of heroin and cocaine for more than seven years. Harris checked into prison to start his sentence in January of this year.
