LOVE & HIP HOP NEW YORK MENDEECEES HARRIS FACES 5 TO 40 YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON!
Sentencing_Table This is the sentencing table used during the sentencing phase for federal defendants.Mendeecees Harris plead guilty on cocaine and heroin charges, (click on link) mendeecees indictment. Enclosed in Mendeecees Harris indictment charges him with Title 21, United States Code, Section 846; Title 18, United
States Code, Section 1956(h). Sources say Mendeecees is facing 5 to 40 years and to add insult to injury he will be ordered to pay a fine of 1,000,000.00 U.S. dollars. As always here on Street Justice, we are dedicated to providing facts to give you a better idea of what all the hoola is all about.For those of you who don’t know, individuals sentenced to serve time in federal prison are expected to serve 85% of their sentence. That is of course, if they don’t get into any trouble while doing time. There are different levels of institutions where inmates are expected to serve their sentences. What determines where an inmate will serve their sentence depends on their criminal history point and the severity of their offense. For instance, politicians or police officers sentenced to prison will be placed in lower level institutions to serve their sentence. Prisons are rated from Minimum to Maximum as followed:
- Camps are the lowest level institution to serve time.
- Super Max
Minimum security facilities, also known as Federal Prison Camps or FPCs typically house criminals who need the least amount of supervision and management. They have dormitory-like housing where inmates are able to coexist in the same space and interact regularly. There is usually a low staff-to-inmate ratio and limited or no perimeter fencing.
Prison camps will often provide inmates with work or program related activities. They are able to participate in community service and help fulfill service needs in the area.
This is the type of facility that housed Martha Stewart in 2004 when she was incarcerated for her involvement with ImClone Systems.
When a prisoner is incarcerated in a low security building, or Federal Correctional Institution, they are also housed in dormitory-like facilities. In addition there is also “cubicle housing” available as well at this level. There is typically a double-fence around the perimeter. Compared to minimum security facilities, low security prisons have a higher staff-to-inmate ratio.
Low security prisons also offer strong work and program components to inmates to keep them occupied and productive. Many of the inmates in low security facilities are either first time low-risk criminals or those who have shown good behavior in the system and have earned the right to be in an environment that provides more freedom. Inmates can, in fact, earn their way to a low security facility from a maximum security building for good behavior.
Inmates who end up at medium security prisons are typically housed in cell-type housing. Their facilities are within double fences with electronic detection systems in place. A variety of work and treatment programs are available to these inmates as well if they comply and make efforts to improve their behavior. Prison guards have more internal controls in medium security facilities.
Prisoners at this level are viewed as escape-risks and are potentially dangerous to other inmates and staff. There is usually constant and direct supervision of all inmates.
High security facilities are often referred to as United States Penitentiaries. These prisons are usually behind heavy-duty perimeters, including walls and reinforced fences. US Penitentiaries house their inmates in single or multiple cell housing with the highest staff-to-inmate ratios. There are cameras situated throughout the buildings for close monitoring of inmate actions.
Inmates secured in high security facilities cannot often be trusted to work out in the field in any community programs. They have very little opportunity to socialize with other inmates. They are considered to be the most dangerous of them all.
More than likely, depending on how well Mendeecees Harris’s attorney negotiate with the United States Attorney, he will serve his sentence at a Medium Institution and work his way down. If he’s not considered a ring leader or an organizer in his conspiracy he’ll eventually be able to get to a lower level facility during his incarceration.
The statutes below are in Mendeecees Harris indictment. It can be located in the United States Code book.
18 U.S. Code § 1956 – Laundering of monetary instruments
21 U.S. Code § 846 – Attempt and conspiracy
Any person who attempts or conspires to commit any offense defined in this sub chapter shall be subject to the same penalties as those prescribed for the offense, the commission of which was the object of the attempt or conspiracy.

THE DEADBEAT PARENTS PUNISHMENT ACT WAS PASSED IN 1998
A lot of conjecture and speculation seems to be stirring about on the streets of Atlanta about Stevie “J” of the TV Reality show Love & HIP HOP of Atlanta and it’s my J-O-B to make sense of the non-sense. That’s right this is your man, the one and only Maestro dropping a little science on the subject. Now most of you may be wondering, what the hell is going on with my man Stevie “J” and believe it or not I’ve been wondering the same thing. All this talk on the show about Stevie “J” owing the feds and little snippets about child support being in the arrears. So the question from one of my followers was: “Can the feds indict you for owing back child support?” Well as crazy as it may sound, ABSOLUTELY! Don’ worry I’ll provide you with the statutes a little later but right now I want to give my take on the subject before, I get down to business.
So here is my take, and I’m the absolute last person in the world to point the finger and judge. But, if you are making money and have children then it seems like you’re priorities should dictate the obvious. Now what a man endures and faces behind the scene only him, is maker and his baby mama knows. And you can best believe if his baby mama knows, it’s just a matter of time before a judge makes an appearance. Having said that, I’ve got one thing to say to the good brother, “If you’re going to be flexing about making a lot of money, make sure you’re current with any child support obligations”. Especially, if you’re on a television reality show. First of all,
Extensive database and registry systems track parents who owe child support. Information is shared among states and between the states and the federal government. For example:
- Employers must report all new hires to their state’s child support enforcement agency. The agency forwards this information to the National Directory of New Hires, a centralized registry that matches employee names with the names of parents who owe child support. The National Directory sets up income-withholding orders for delinquent parents.
- States must ask for the Social Security numbers of both parents when a child is born and must pass those numbers on to the state agency that enforces child support.
- Judges sometimes order noncustodial parents to pay child support to the state child support enforcement agency, which in turn pays the custodial parent. This method is often used when the noncustodial parent is without regular income (perhaps self-employed) or when parents agree to waive the automatic wage withholding.
So the question remains; Can the federal government indict you for being delinquent in child support?
Why are the states and the federal government using criminal penalties for delinquent child support obligatory? Both state and federal laws targeting parents who willfully fail to pay child support to be criminally prosecuted are gaining support in the legislatures, the courts, and the public. Child support experts and policymakers are differentiating between those who “can’t pay” and those who “won’t pay.” Nationwide, the states are developing and using more aggressive enforcement mechanisms to pursue those who simply refuse to pay. State and federal prosecutors target parents who purposely hide assets, avoid employment or otherwise shirk their responsibilities. States such as Kentucky, Ohio and Virginia, have conducted high profile trials and “sting” operations to locate and prosecute parents with large child support debts – in some cases there is several hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake. Federal agencies involved are the Inspector General’s Office and Office of the Child Support Enforcement of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, along with the U.S. Department of Justice, created Project Save our Children (PSOC) to create a comprehensive health and human services and criminal justice response to this issue. Most of the parents arrested and prosecuted by PSOC are wealthy individuals with substantial assets. Many think that child support is a matter of civil law (family law) and not criminal. It’s true that the child support guidelines and enforcement mechanisms are civil in nature, but failure to pay child support may result in criminal sanctions in three situations:
- Prosecution under a state statute. In California, Penal Code Section 270 states in part, “If a parent of a minor child willfully omits, without lawful excuse, to furnish necessary clothing, food, shelter or medical attendance, or other remedial care for his or her child, he or she is guilty of misdemeanor punishable by a fine not exceeding $2,000, 1 year county jail, or both.”
- Prosecution under federal law. The Deadbeat Parents Punishment Act was passed in 1998 and signed by President Bill Clinton and made it a federal crime to cross state lines in order to avoid child support payments. If a parent who failed to pay child support a minimum of $5,000 for a period of at least 1 year or if the parent owes at least $10,000, the parent may be charged with a felony and, if convicted, may be sentenced to up to 2 years in state prison.
- Because child support orders are official court orders, a parent disobeying the order risks contempt of court.
What if the parent doesn’t have the resources to pay the child support? The inability to pay defense must be raised by the obligor. Additionally, instead of letting your arrears increase, a motion for downward modification based on change of circumstances must be immediately filed. Both the federal and state must prove that whether or not a parent has the financial ability to comply with the child support order is critical in their prosecutions. In other words, in order to obtain a conviction, a prosecutor has to prove that the parent has the resources to pay child support and simply chose not to do so. Before you face prosecution, parents who truly lack the ability to pay child support should consult an attorney to see what options are available besides a modification. Many states offer parents who cannot meet their obligations the opportunity to negotiate a payment or substantially decrease their debt.
So there you have it, lock stock and two smoking barrels! This is another report from your man Maestro, and I’m out-ta here.

THE TRUE FACE OF “THE STATUTE OF LIBERTY”
DEPICTED “A BLACK WOMAN”
The “Original” Statute of Liberty’s face pales in comparisons to her knock-off. It has been said that the “The ones who wins the war writes the history”. So who won the civil war? Well the French felt the black man’s contribution to the war was significant. If fact the French presented the United States the Statute of Liberty in 1884. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from the French people commemorating the alliance of France and the United States during the American Revolution. Yet, it represented much more to those individuals who proposed the gift. “Liberty” was a controversial idea in the 19th century one shroud in oppression and ignorance. To some people she represented an international symbol of liberty, justice, and democracy. But to others it suggested violence and revolution.
Now if you have a problem with me referring to the current “Statute” as a “Knock-off” then you should be outraged that the current Statute of Liberty replaced the original statute in the 1800’s. But why do you think the U.S. Government felt the need to change the statutes structural appearance? And why was it necessary to change the ethnicity and methodology of the Statute of Liberty’s symbolism? This isn’t the first time in the history of civilization that the black man’s legacy has been altered. From deforming the Sphinx face to the speech delivered by Willie Lynch on the shores of the James River in 1712 the saga continues. For years Black women have been demoralized and made the subject of criticism regarding some of their physical attributes. Now botax cosmetics and plastic surgery has become a booming business. With every discovery of history you can find the deliberate attempt to misrepresent the man of color. Which leads us back to the topic a hand. Was the original statute presented to the United States by the French was in fact, “A BLACK WOMAN”?
I don’t care what level of education you’ve been exposed to, the true facts about the Black man’s story up to this point HAS NOT been properly represented on any level…including slavery. Even the so-called “Black History Month” fails to truly demonstrate the intellect prowess and unconditional sacrifices of the man of color’s contribution to civilization. It is hard to believe that after my many years of schooling (secondary and post) the following facts about the Statue of Liberty were never taught. But Black man has absolutely no one to blame for the miseducation of the negro other than ourselves. We (as men) have to be more vigilant in the fight to educate our youth. Look at what length this country is willing to go through to distort the truth. Knowledge is power! I for one will continue to search for the answers no matter how long it takes. Until we start owing up to Americas true history things will not change.
Freedom is not standing still. A symbolic feature that people cannot see is the broken chain wrapped around the Statue’s feet. Protruding from the bottom of her robe, the broken chains symbolize her free forward movement, enlightening the world with her torch free from oppression and servitude.
Of course, there are those on the other side of the fence who discount the account as not being true and offered a report titled below. I am dedicated to offering information for enrichment advancement of race relations and if information can’t be CONCLUSIVELY proven, one way or the other you have to use reason to discern your truth. So be open minded and research the information and get back at me. You’ll be surprised at what you can find simply by reading. Somewhere between the words “lies” the truth! This is your man Maestro and I’m out!
