Kodak Black Sentenced To Four Months In Jail
The 19-year-old rapper pleads no contest to misdemeanor marijuana charges.
A Florida judge sentenced Kodak Black to 120 days behind bars after the teen pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor weed charges Monday (Sept. 19).
In addition to jail time, Black’s license will be suspended and he is being ordered to pay $298 in court costs.
The Florida rapper whose birth name is Dieuson Octave, is locked up at the St. Lucie County Jail, and will receive credit for time served.
“At the end of the day, for St. Lucie County, I think he did well.” Black’s lawyer said, according to the Orlando Sun-Sentinel.
Black, 19, pleaded no contest to single counts of misdemeanor possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, and possession of weed paraphernalia.
The case dates back to a 2015 traffic stop, and Black’s failure to appear in July. A bench warrant was issued for his arrest, while he was already jailed on separate charges including possession of a firearm by a convicted felony and weed possession.
Black was facing 55 years in that case, but received a year of house arrest and five years probation in a plea deal.
While Black's release date is scheduled for Nov. 30, he currently faces criminal sexual conduct charges in South Carolina. Black stands accused of committing sexual battery against a woman in hotel room this past February.
It is not yet known if he will be extradited to the state.
