Mandeecees Harris acquitted of child sex abuse charges
After being accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old girl, a “Love & Hip Hop” star has been acquitted and can now breathe a sigh of relief. Mandeecees Harris, 34, was cleared of all charges Friday, February 8 after a teen told jurors he masturbated on her, inappropriately touched her and offered her money for sexual favors.
According to the jury, however, Harris was falsely accused and he was ultimately found not guilty of all charges. “My client and his family are jubilant that these charges are now behind him… This is real drama, not TV,” said the reality star’s attorney.
This isn’t the last of Harris’ legal troubles, however; he is also accused of drug trafficking and could face up to five years in prison if convicted.
Despite that, Harris’ girlfriend Yandy Smith recently took to Instagram to share her joy over his acquittal with fans. “No matter how much they tried to rip you of your pride, defame your name, degrade you…you kept your faith in God! [...] Not guilty!,” she wrote.
