Kodak Black Sentenced To One Year in Jail On Marijuana And Gun Charges

posted by Johnny Greene -

Kodak Black has been M.I.A for a couple months and that’s because he has been in a South Florida jail awaiting his sentence on multiple charges, that came from a gun and marijuana possession arrest back in January . 

On Tuesday (April 17), the court sentenced the rapper to serve a year behind bars. However, Kodak does have a chance to get out earlier if he continues the good behavior . So far he’s already served 90 days. 

The original arrest  included charges of grand theft of a firearm, two charges of possession of a weapon or ammo by a Florida delinquent adult felon, possession of cannabis over 20 grams, child neglect without great bodily harm and two counts of parole violation. According to court documents, those violations included driving on a suspended license and “associating with people committing crimes.”

Most of those charges were later dismissed, except the possession of a weapon by a felon and possession of cannabis remaining, which he pleaded not guilty to.

First and foremost I want to thank the lord for this blessing in disguise which was sending me back to jail January 18 2018 #1800 Second I want to thank the lord again for using my advocate Bradford Cohen ( @lawronin ) as an instrument to speak through him and work diligently on my behalf. I would also like to thank Brad for seeing me as more than a client and for looking out for me as one of his family members. Last but not least I would like to thank the judge Michael Lynch and the prosecutor Michelle Boutros for giving me a fair deliberation and not over looking me and judging as the media and the nay sayers set me out to be #1k #dietolive #HBK
