21-year-old Florida rapper, Kodak Black, who was sentenced to jail seven months ago following multiple charges, is now a free man after being released from Broward County jail early Saturday morning.
The rapper, born Dieuson Octave, served seven months in a Florida jail after authorities raided his home in January.
Police were prompted to search his Pembroke Pines residence after an Instagram video revealed marijuana near his son. Black was subsequently arrested and charged with marijuana possession, child neglect, grand theft of a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Kodak was originally arrested earlier this year for a slew of charges, including grand theft of firearm, possession of marijuana and neglecting a child. He had 7 charges in total, but 5 of which were later eventually dropped, saving him from serving a possible 12 years.
“All I can say is, I work very hard to try and give all of my clients a second chance,” Kodak’s attorney Bradford Cohen said last month to Pitchfork about the shortened sentence. “We were lucky that the matter concerning […] Kodak was resolved in a way we felt was extremely fair by the prosecutor handling the matter. He looks forward to getting out and creating new music and spreading his charity work.”
