Kodak Black has been sentenced to one year imprisonment after striking a deal with Florida prosecutors in his gun and marijuana case. He pleaded guilty to two probation violations, driving on a suspended license and associating with people committing crimes after prosecutors dropped the other charges against him.
Bradford Cohen, Black’s attorney was pleased with the end result as seen in a Twitter post on Tuesday afternoon. “Just completely resolved @KodakBlack1k case,” he wrote. “The State and Judge were professional and fair. I am happy not just for a client, but for a friend. There are great things instore for him, and he is glad to have this behind him.”
Kodak Black was facing up to 12 years of incarceration following his January 18 arrest on multiple charges, including grand theft of a firearm, gun possession, drug possession, child neglect and probation violation. The charges of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, third-degree grand theft and child neglect were dropped a month later but prosecutors added charges of felony possession of cannabis and possession of ammunition by a delinquent. The artist still has impending legal issues in South Carolina. Last October, Black was indicted by a Florence County grand jury on charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
