Kodak Black has been banned from the entire state of South Carolina, WYFF4 reports. Project Baby, who faces a sexual misconduct charge, can visit The Palmetto State only for court appearances.
Kodak, born Dieuson Octave, 19, was transferred to Florence County Detention Center the night of Monday, Nov. 28 on a charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct upon his release from St. Lucie County Jail in Florida. Kodak was sentenced to four months at the Florida jail on two misdemeanor drug charges.
The Pompano Beach rapper is accused of committing sexual battery at a hotel in Florence, South Carolina, according to the Sun-Sentinel. The crime carries a maximum of 30 years in prison.
The night of Feb. 7, Kodak allegedly engaged in the sexual battery of the victim at a Comfort Suites Hotel in Florence, SC, Major Michael M. Nunn, a spokesman for the Florence County Sheriff’s Office, told the Sun-Sentinel in an email.
Kodak performed at Club Compound a night prior for Francis Marion University’s homecoming.

Kodak Black’s arrest warrant reveals details of the rape. The warrant states Kodak forced the female victim onto the bed in the room and then onto floor of the room. He then allegedly removed the victim’s underwear and “licked her v—–,” and then “put his penis” into her v—–. The victim said she repeatedly told him to stop, but to no avail. Kodak also allegedly bit her on her neck and right breast.
The victim’s injuries were documented in a sexual assault kit administered by medical personnel.
Kodak’s attorney Gary Kollin believes his client’s case will go in his favor.
“We are firmly convinced that he will be vindicated in that charge and shortly be set free,” Kollin said. “… He’s looking forward to getting to South Carolina so he can go on with his life and career.”
In South Carolina, a criminal sexual conduct charge can occur in a number of ways. A victim can reportedly be forced to have sex through aggravated force, during a kidnapping or while physically helpless due to the influence of a controlled substance.
In August, Kodak escaped numerous charges that carried a maximum 55-year sentence after he was sentenced to house arrest and probation.
He was sentenced to once year of house arrest and five years of probation after he pleaded no contest to numerous charges, including robbery false imprisonment, fleeing a law enforcement officer and possession of a firearm by a delinquent.
The plea deal allowed Kodak to escape being tainted as a convicted felon. He also would’ve been allowed to tour internationally.
Kodak was ordered to community service, anger management and community control supervision.
