Kodak Black To Be Freed From Jail; Gets House Arrest and Probation

Kodak Black got out that jam. Project Baby will soon be regaining his freedom after he was sentenced to one year of house arrest and five years of probation, according to The Sun-Sentinel.

The “No Flockin” rapper, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, pleaded no contest to numerous charges, including robbery false imprisonment, fleeing a law enforcement officer and possession of a firearm by a delinquent.

Kodak won’t be tainted as a convicted felon under the plea deal, and will be allowed to tour internationally.

Kodak must perform community service, anger management and community control supervision.

Kodak’s Atlantic Records family was present at the hearing in support.

Michael Kushner, executive vice president of legal at Atlantic Records, testified on behalf of Kodak.

“He’s only at the very beginning of a very promising career,” he said, according to XXL Mag. “It is our hope that the court will agree that he be given the opportunity to turn his life around.”

This isn’t Kodak’s first arrest. In 2015, Kodak was arrested after allegedly forcing several people into a car after accused someone of breaking into his house.

He was later released on bond, but then arrested once again in April 2016 after police observed him in a drug deal in Hallandale Beach. Kodak then led police on a car chase, ditching a gun in a dumpster before his arrest.

When accepting the plea deal, Judge Lisa Porter had this to say to Kodak:

“I will give you an opportunity, Mr. Octave, to prove yourself here, and be a productive member of society. What happens from here on out is up to you.”

Kodak Black’s mom, Marcelene Octave, openly expressed her excitement after the hearing.

“I love you, baby boy!” she said to Kodak while exiting the courtroom.
