Yesterday, Kodak Black took a plea deal for violating his probation by live streaming images from his home of drugs and guns.
He will serve 364 days in Florida county jail minus 90 days time served after officially pleading guilty to driving on a suspended license and “associating with people committing crimes." If all goes well, he could be out by late September and won't be on probation when he is released. He had been facing up to 12 years.
Black was on probation as part of a plea deal he struck in 2016 on charges including robbery, false imprisonment, fleeing a law enforcement officer and possession of a firearm by a delinquent.
Black jumped IG and thanked his ninja-like lawyer, the judge and the prosecutor for working out a fair plea deal, which he described as a "blessing." (The contrast with how the legal system has treated Meek Mill and Black is pretty striking.)
First and foremost I want to thank the lord for this blessing in disguise which was sending me back to jail January 18 2018 #1800 Second I want to thank the lord again for using my advocate Bradford Cohen ( @lawronin ) as an instrument to speak through him and work diligently on my behalf. I would also like to thank Brad for seeing me as more than a client and for looking out for me as one of his family members. Last but not least I would like to thank the judge Michael Lynch and the prosecutor Michelle Boutros for giving me a fair deliberation and not over looking me and judging as the media and the nay sayers set me out to be #1k #dietolive #HBK
Black is still facing 30 years in South Carolina for criminal sexual conduct in a separate case
