Kodak Black has served his time in St. Lucie jail, but still has quite a road ahead of him to gain his freedom. According to the Sun-Sentinel, the 19-year-old rapper was transferred to the custody of South Carolina law enforcement November 27 to be extradited to the state to face a sexual battery charge.
Project Baby appeared in court November 21 where a judge approved the extradition transfer. If convicted, he could face up to 30 years in prison.
“We are firmly convinced that he will be vindicated in that charge and shortly be set free,” Black’s Fort Lauderdale-based lawyer Gary Kollin says. “… He’s looking forward to getting to South Carolina so he can go on with his life and career.”
Black was sentenced in September to 120 days in jail after pleading no contest to two misdemeanor drug charges.
A month earlier, he was set to be freed from Broward County jail after being arrested in May for open warrants a month after being taken into custody when officers witnessed him purchasing marijuana. Upon being processed for release, authorities found two more cases on the teenager, born Dieuson Octave: the drug charges and the sexual battery case in South Carolina.
During his time behind bars, Black has let his fans know he’s staying busy by releasing his “Jail House Blues” freestyle and sharing a PSA in support of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
