Kodak Black Released From Florida Jail

Kodak Black has been released from St. Lucie County jail today (Monday, Nov. 28).

In September, the “No Flockin” rapper was sentenced to jail time for two misdemeanor drug charges from a Dec. 25, 2015 traffic stop.

Kodak, born Dieuson Octave, pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of possession of 20 grams or less of cannabis, and a misdemeanor charge of use or possession of drug paraphernalia.

Kodak’s driver’s license was suspended for a year. He was also ordered to pay the court $298 in fees.

Kodak was eligible for early release with credit for time served.

Kodak’s troubles are far from over though. The 19-year-old rapper was transferred to the custody of South Carolina deputies to be extradited to that state to face a sex charge, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Kodak will be transferred to Florence, SC to face charges of sexual misconduct.

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.

Drew Brown, promoter and owner of We On Ent., a South Carolina entertainment company, booked Kodak for the show.

“About 1,200 to 1,300 people came out to see him,” Brown said.

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.
