Kodak Black has been officially transferred to a Florence, South Carolina jail to face a charge of sexual misconduct. Kodak was booked into the South Carolina jail on Monday around 11 p.m. Kodak was transferred after he completed his two month jail sentence at St. Lucie County Jail.
Kodak’s attorney Gary Kollin believes his client’s case will go in his favor.
“We are firmly convinced that he will be vindicated in that charge and shortly be set free,” Kollin said. “… He’s looking forward to getting to South Carolina so he can go on with his life and career.”
The Pompano Beach rapper is accused of committing sexual battery at a hotel in Florence, South Carolina, according to the Sun-Sentinel. The crime carries a maximum of 30 years in prison.
The night of Feb. 7, Kodak allegedly engaged in the sexual battery of the victim at a Comfort Suites Hotel in Florence, SC, Major Michael M. Nunn, a spokesman for the Florence County Sheriff’s Office, told the Sun-Sentinel in an email.
Kodak performed at Club Compound a night prior for Francis Marion University’s homecoming.
Drew Brown, promoter and owner of We On Ent., a South Carolina entertainment company, booked Kodak for the show.
“About 1,200 to 1,300 people came out to see him,” Brown said.
In South Carolina, a criminal sexual conduct charge can occur in a number of ways. A victim can reportedly be forced to have sex through aggravated force, during a kidnapping or while physically helpless due to the influence of a controlled substance.
In August, Kodak escaped numerous charges that carried a maximum 55-year sentence after he was sentenced to house arrest and probation.
He was sentenced to once year of house arrest and five years of probation after he pleaded no contest to numerous charges, including robbery false imprisonment, fleeing a law enforcement officer and possession of a firearm by a delinquent.
The plea deal allowed Kodak to escape being tainted as a convicted felon. He also would’ve been allowed to tour internationally.
Kodak was ordered to community service, anger management and community control supervision.
