BREAKING: “Love & Hip-Hop” Star Mandeecees Harris ACQUITTED Of Sexual Assault Against Teen

(AllHipHop News) VH1 “Love & Hip Hop” star Mandeecees Harris was acquitted of sexually assaulting a teenager earlier today (February 8).

The Cliffview Pilot reports that jurors returned the verdict just after 4:00 PM, causing an outburst of cheers in court.

Mandeecees Harris was charged with having a sexual relationship with the daughter of his live-in girlfriend, in Lodi, New Jersey.

Prosecutors claimed that Harris received oral sex from the girl in September 2009 and April 2010.

Harris was arrested in 2010 and charged with aggravated sexual assault, criminal sexual assault and child endangerment.

Earlier this week, Harris took this stand to defend himself.

“I never had a relationship with her, she never extended herself,” Harris claimed. “She didn’t play basketball, she didn’t play PlayStation, didn’t want to go to the movies. She always walked around the house like she had an attitude. I never committed none of them asked to that girl in my life.”

Not all those were in agreement with the verdict.

The teenaged victim’s grandmother and aunt left the courtroom as the verdict was being read and promised that the “truth” would eventually come out.

Mandeecees Harris is not out his legal quandary just yet.

Harris is facing drug charges in Rochester New York, over claims that he trafficked $2.5 million worth of heroin and with cocaine between 2005 and 2012.

Mandeecees Harris, is the boyfriend of Yandy Smith, who also stars in “Love & Hip Hop” and used to manage rapper Jim Jones.

Harris also manages Vado and Webstar.

      Why?! because she said he did? I did not see one shred of evidence. She claims there were text, but how come the text were never produced? I’m not even a fan of Mandancees but they had this man fighting for his life off the strength of hearsay. If he wasn’t a celebrity with a few chips to fight the case he would be on his way to prison.

        To be honest this case wasn’t even a battle of the experts. Glad justice prevailed. This case should have never been tried and I’m sure the DA who lost is catching hell.

        I agree, but whats messed up about it is that he may have to defend himself allover again in the civil case. He will probably end up settling just to avoid lawyer cost and court fees…give the hoodrat 5 or 10 stacks and send her on her way….Hopefully the courts wont see no merit to the claims and dismiss the suit.

        Nah, that’s how Michael Jackson phucked up. Paying anything is like an admission of guilt no matter how you look at it. Even if you’re innocent, that will follow you forever.

        You’re right!!!! That would just be a low cost solution to his problem. He might be better off going for the counter suit for defamation of character/Slander. That might convince her to fallback.

        In the public eye it is an admission but look at OJ he couldnt get convicted in criminal court but he did in civil.. Regardless if OJ did it or not that would be some scary shyt to get convicted of molestation in a civil court when you beat the criminal.. Cuz then niccas will just say you were convicted anyway.. Civil courts have lower standards to bring about a conviction..

        i know how low down and dirty folks can be but @ the end of the day i dont know the details of this case and i dont think anyone hear commenting does either … so to say he molested the kid or not … we cant really say …. def good to hear i guess it was somewhat fair seeing that he got acquited dont know too many that dodged this bullet … maybe its like yall said he had the $$$$$ to beat the case …. and if thats the case we def cant sit here and say justice was served ….. and its kind of sickening like damn hes only free cause of $$$$$ ….. justice wasnt served if thats the case …. these courts are suppose to some how find out the truth and place blame, punishment and innocences in the right direction

      Yea, he was telling her brothers to get money from her saying “she know what she gotta do” but none of them could be bothered to speak on that, or even her mom? No texts, no police reports until what 3+ years later? That all sounds believable, lol. Here’s what happened, most kids don’t really like the dude that’s piping their mom cuz then they’re getting less attention from their mom, & since he was likely running the household, she couldn’t just do whatever she wanted so she stayed with an attitude, as teenagers are apt to. Cut to a couple years later, her mom isn’t with him no more, she knows he’s caked up & getting on tv, plus she already don’t like him, why not try to extort him. 9 times outta 10 the authorities are going to believe a female saying they were sexually assaulted automatically & the burden of proof will fall on the man to prove he didn’t do it. What would she have to lose?

        i hear ya but @ the same time when it comes to molestation and rape 9 times out of 10 it doesnt get reported until that person hits a wall which is usually months to years after the incident happens .. sad but true …..

      Most people in the rap game are. It might not be drugs but they doing something and using the music as a front.

    his reputation is still probably forever ruined now. I know when I hear of him the first thing will always come to my mind is this.

  2. Ayanna Smoot

    He was acquitted and tha’t enough said. Justice has been served, now let that man move on with his life. Only God can judge and only he and that little girl knows what really happened. So “poof be gone” to all those who have something to say other than the reality of it all.. “He was ACQUITTED” I wish him much success and that I hope he can reach his fullest potential in what he set out to accomplish. He has or is working on becoming a better man..
