Instead of trying to hit a party after his baby shower (as we saw on the premiere of Love & Hip Hop NY), Yandy’s baby daddy, Mendeecee should have been busy getting ready for his trial where he is being accused for molesting an underage girl.
Get Informed with the details, under the jump!
Jury selection began Wednesday in Hackensack for the trial of a hip-hop reality TV star accused of molesting an underage girl in Lodi two years ago.
Mandeecees Harris, a 34-year-old actor on the VH1 reality show “Love and Hip-Hop,” is charged with performing various sexual acts with a 15-year-old girl and inappropriately touching her at his former home in Lodi.
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 faces up to 20 years in prison.
Harris remains free without bail. He was not present in state Superior Court in Hackensack during jury selection Wednesday. Court officials expect to have a full panel of jurors by Thursday, and attorneys are scheduled to make opening remarks on Jan. 29.
That’s the only thing about being on TV and a public figure, ALL of your skeletons will come running out of the closet.
