Kodak Black Sentenced to 120 Days in Jail
Kodak Black has been sentenced to 120 days in a Florida jail after pleading no contest to two misedemeanor drug charges on Monday (Sept. 19), according to the Sun Sentinel. St. Lucie County jail public records show that the Pompano Beach rapper (real name Dieuson Octave) pled a misdemeanor charge of possession of 20 grams or less of cannabis and a second misdemeanor charge of use or possession of drug paraphernalia.
The 19-year-old MC, most known for his hit "Skrt" and his Lil B.I.G. Pac mixtape released in June, will be credited for the time spent in jail since his May arrest. His driver's license will also be suspended for a year and he will also pay court costs amounting to $289.
While his expected release date is listed as Nov. 30, 2016, Black still faces a criminal charge of sexual conduct in a South Carolina court. The Sun-Sentinel reports that the rapper was accused of committing sexual battery at a Florence hotel in February, around the time he performed at a club in the city. The crime is punishable for up to 30 years in prison.
Black also had a stint at St. Broward County jail before landing at St. Lucie on multiple charges that included robbery, false imprisonment, drug possession, firearm possession, driving a vehicle without a valid license and fleeing a law enforcement officer.
A label rep for Black did not immediately return a request for comment.
