Kodak Black is coming home. He was sentenced today to one year of house arrest and five years of probation.
The Florida rapper had a hearing in Fort Lauderdale court today (Aug. 16) regarding his May re-arrest for false imprisonment, robbery without a weapon, operating a vehicle without a viable license and possession of marijuana.
According to Brett Clarkson, a reporter for the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Kodak Black’s legal team entered a no contest plea to all charges. Michael Kushner, executive vice president of legal at Atlantic Records, was in court to testify on behalf of Kodak, saying, “He’s only at the very beginning of a very promising career […] It is our hope that the court will agree that he be given the opportunity to turn his life around.” Another friend of Kodak told the judge, “I think he deserves a second chance.”
The judge, Lisa Porter, accepted that plea, telling the 19-year-old, “I will give you an opportunity, Mr Octave, to prove yourself here, and be a productive member of society […] What happens from here on out is up to you.”
Kodak will also perform community service, anger management and community control supervision. In addition, the judge withheld adjudication, allowing Kodak to tour internationally.
The judge will allow Kodak Black to come home whenever the jail releases him. Could be today, could be tomorrow.
