Kodak Black Has Two Gun Charges Dropped Amid BLM Protests
In the state of Florida, Kodak Black had two charges dropped against him, giving the performing artist a breath of fresh air. Hot New Hip Hop reported today that the incarcerated rapper received some good news regarding his weapon charges.
Authorities have claimed that several of the weapons charges have been dismissed. During a conversation with the Miami-Date State Attorney, Katherine Fernandez Rundle, Kodak's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, managed to present the rapper's case in a favorable way.
The prosecutors dropped two counts of the charge accusing Kodak Black of having in his possession a gun while "prohibited." The charges, together, could've put the rapper behind bars for 15 years.
Cohen said the government wanted Kodak Black to get drug treatment, however, it was difficult to do on account of the open case and the maximum-security prison in which he has been staying.
Reportedly, the prosecutors overseeing the case thought it was best to drop some of the charges so Kodak Black could be sent to a different prison and also receive drug treatment.
As it was previously reported, Kodak Black was serving a four-year prison sentence after he lied on an application to buy a gun. Currently, he's staying in Big Sandy in Kentucky, which is one of the toughest maximum-security prisons in the nation.
Kodak Black's case has been at the top of entertainment news headlines repeatedly over the last few months, including when images of him being transported to a different location were revealed.
Hot New Hip Hop discovered an Instagram post from DJ Akademiks in which Kodak Black was being taken to a different cell. Around the same time, Kodak claimed to be a victim of abuse from cruel guards. Bradford, due to the purported severity of the rapper's situation, reached out for help from Meek Mill and Kim Kardashian.
Kim Kardashian and Meek Mill, together, have been fighting for criminal justice reform in the United States. The latter of which served time in a penitentiary as well after he violated his parole to shoot a music video in which he was riding a motorcycle.
