Authorities pulled Harris in after learning he was involved in drug trafficking conspiracy between 2005 to 2012. The conspiracy involved shipping large amounts of cocaine and heroin from downstate New York to the Rochester region.

With his wife sitting in court with their 10 month-old daughter, Skylar, Harris apologized for his actions and spoke about recent work done in his community to teach children the value of staying in school and staying away from a life of criminal activity.
