Kodak Black Avoids 12-Year Sentence, Gets 6 Months In Jail

Kodak Black can breathe a huge sigh of relief after police nabbed him on weapon and drug charges in January. Project Baby struck a plea deal that will have him out of that jam by September, the Sun-Sentinel reports.

On Tuesday, Kodak got his remaining two charges, possession of ammunition and marijuana charge, dropped.

Kodak’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, took to Twitter to announce he “resolved Kodak Black’s case.”

He wrote, “Just completely resolved @KodakBlack1k case. The state and Judge were professional and fair. I am happy not just for a client, but for a friend. There are great things instore for him, and he is glad to have this behind him.”

Kodak, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, was initially charged with seven felonies that included grand theft of a firearm, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, marijuana possession, child neglect and probation violation.

In February, Kodak’s legal team was able to get three of his criminal charges dropped from his case that included possession of a weapon or ammunition by a delinquent, grand theft of a firearm, and child neglect.

The 20-year-old Florida rapper was arrested in January when police raided his home after he was seen on IG Live showing marijuana and a handgun. Police found 95 grams of pot, according to ABC 10.

Kodak is serving time for associating with people involved with criminal activity, and driving with a suspended license, Cohen told the Sun-Sentinel. With Kodak being on house arrest and probation from his robbery and false imprisonment case, he was sentenced to another five months in jail.

As part of Kodak’s plea deal, he won’t be on house arrest or probation any longer.

Kodak’s expected release date is Monday, Sept. 17, according to Broward Sheriff’s jail booking records.
