Kodak Black Turns Down 8-Year Plea Deal For Battery and Probation Violations

Kodak Black is probably thinking the judicial system don’t wanna see him winning.

Kodak made an appearance in court Wednesday, where prosecutors offered him a plea deal of eight years for an alleged battery and probation violations, according to Local 10 News. Kodak turned it down.

Kodak violated probation for charges from his May 2016 arrest for strong-arm robbery, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm by a delinquent and fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement.

Kodak was taken into custody Feb. 28 for violating the terms of his house arrest. The battery charges were announced earlier this month.

Kodak’s family was in the courtroom to support as well as his Atlantic Records family.

Kodak’s probation officer, Sandy Friedman, was present in Wednesday’s court session to reiterate the rapper’s unwillingness to complete anger management.

“He did not complete anger management, he was thrown out,” Freidman said.

In Kodak’s last court hearing, Friedman, streamed YouTube videos in court that showed the rapper’s attitude. In one video, Kodak can be heard yelling and cursing about his efforts to comply with the terms of the mandated classes. In another video, Kodak looks at the camera and says he’s late for a session, then denied being late when he arrives.

Kodak violated his probation by “failing to remain confined to his approved residence except for one half hour before and after approved employment, public service work, or any other special activities approved by the officer […] on various times and dates, as evidenced from the pictures on video showing the offender at various places that were not approved,” the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Kodak is also in trouble for attending Adrien Broner’s bout against Adrian Granados in Cincinnati the night of Saturday, Feb. 18

Kodak’s battery charges stem from a woman who accused him of assault at Club Lexx earlier this year, the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Jennifer Cunningham, 34, reportedly told police Kodak “approached her and started acting belligerent” around 3 a.m.

“After I pushed him away he started swinging his hands towards me, like he was tying to attack me,” Jennifer Cunningham said, according Local 10 News. “As he’s trying to attack me, I’m grabbing (his arms) to defend myself.”

Cunningham admitted she didn’t see a doctor for her injuries until two weeks after the alleged assault. Cunningham did, however, file a report the day of the incident.

No formal charges have been filed in the alleged incident.

“Basically, I was a victim and assaulted by a gentleman that had no right to put his hands on me,” Cunningham said, according to the Sun-Sentinel. “And I don’t tolerate that.”

Cunningham reportedly said the rapper got up on the bar while she was working, preventing her from accessing a cooler to serve drinks to customers. When she asked Kodak to get down from the bar, he made a handgun gesture with two fingers and pushed them against her temple. She pushed Kodak away, and then he started swinging at her, and kicked her near her right shoulder.

Prosecutors are pushing for eight years if they can prove to judge that the assault occurred, according to the Sun-Sentinel. If they can’t prove it, they are asking for six years.

She told the court she emailed Kodak’s manager threatening to sue the rapper for monetary damages.

Kodak Black is still winning despite being behind bars. Kodak sold 71,000 copies of his debut project.

The album sits at the No. 3 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 chart.

Kodak’s project features 18 tracks with guest appearances from Bun B, Future, Young Thug, Jeezy and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. The project is available for purchase on iTunes.
