Love & Hip-Hop Cast Member On Trial for Child Molestation

(AllHipHop News) Days after the highly anticipated debut of Love & Hip-Hop's third season, one of the show's newest characters is at the center of another drama.

Yandy Smith's baby dady is in hot water for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a minor.

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. []

Here we thought Yandy's biggest problem with Mandeecees was him hitting the club the night of their baby shower.

Let's see if they address this on the show.
