VH1 cast member, Mandeecees Harris, and boyfriend to Yandy Smith is on trial facing child molestation charges in New Jersey’s Supreme Court. Transcripts of the trial has been released and it’s not looking good for the defense.
Mendeecees appeared in a Bergen County courthouse to refute the claims that he manipulated a 15-year old girl into having sex and performing oral on him repeated times between 2009-2010.
CliffViewPilot.com has been following the trial since it began earlier this week. The teen accuser claims she didn’t know Mendeecees was on television and she says he told her she was better than her mother at oral sex (which was his girlfriend at the time).
Defense is claiming that the girl (who is now 19) is lying and made up a fraudulent story to avoid being sent down south to live with her father. They also claim the young female had other issues which induced her to falsify a story. They believe she may be after fame now.
Mandeecees has been released on bail for the child molesting charges, but remains in Bergen County jail on drug trafficking charges which police charged him and two other men with last week. Prosecution will move forward with the drug case once the molestation trial is over.
