Kodak Black Slammed With Fresh Charges, Faces 30 Years If Convicted
Kodak Black Fresh Charges: Kodak Black‘s troubles with the law have sadly not come to an end, despite being handed down a 46 month sentence. Like the proverbial, ‘One week, one trouble’, Kodak just can’t seem to get it right.
In developing news, the 22 year old rapper has now been slapped with fresh weapons charges by the state prosecutors from The Miami-Dade State Attorney’s office. If convicted, he faces up to 30 years in prison, on each count, being that he is a habitual violent offender.
Black, who grew up in Pompano Beach, has skyrocketed to popularity over the past six years. His December 2018 album, “Dying to Live,” debuted at the top of the Billboard albums chart. Black’s hits include songs such as “Tunnel Vision,” “No Flockin” and Wake Up in the City” with Gucci Mane and Bruno Mars.
But his career has been marred by a long string of legal problems.
In May, Black was arrested just before he was to take the stage at the Rolling Loud hip-hop concern at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. Authorities said he lied about his criminal history on a federal document that must be completed to buy a gun from a registered dealer.
For that crime, U.S. Judge Federico Moreno on Wednesday sentenced him to three years, 10 months in prison. The judge stated that he usually gives young people a break for doing stupid things. In Kodak’s case, however, he has been at it since he was 15. Tragic!
Prior to that time, he had been convicted in November 2013 of attempted robbery with a weapon, but was a juvenile at the time, according to the warrant.
He is also facing trial in South Carolina on allegations he raped a high school student in South Carolina.
