Rapper Accused Of Sexual Battery Against High School Student In 2016
A South Carolina judge has ordered Kodak Black to turn over his DNA as part of his ongoing rape case, BOSSIP has learned.
Last week, a Judge Michael Nettles signed solicitor E.L. Clements III’s request to force Kodak to hand over blood or saliva samples ASAP in order to compare it to the DNA law enforcement investigators recovered from the high school student accusing him of raping her three years ago, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP.
Cops have charged Kodak with criminal sexual contact in the first degree following the alleged rape. If he’s convicted, he could face up to 30 years in state prison.
Clements said in court papers that he is well within his legal right to obtain the DNA samples from the “Zeze” rapper, whose real name is Dieuson Octave. The prosecutor said the collection would not violate Kodak’s constitutional rights and is considered part of a normal booking procedure.
According to court docs, the alleged victim attended a Kodak Black concert back in Feb. 2016 and later, she and her friends agreed to accompany the Florida rapper back to his hotel at the Comfort Suites in Columbia. The girl said that once she got in a room alone with him, he became sexually aggressive, pushing her against the wall and then down onto some furniture.
The alleged victim said he forced her onto a bed and continued the assault, despite her yelling and screaming “No!,” according to an affidavit. Then the rapper removed the girl’s underwear, put her on the floor, and began biting her on the neck and breast, the court docs state.
The docs say that Kodak then licked her vagina and proceeded to rape her, even though she continued to scream “No!” After the alleged assault was over, the girl said she left with her friends, and later reported the alleged incident to her high school resource officer.
Investigators recovered a DNA profile from the girl’s neck area and when they ran it through the national database, it matched Kodak’s profile, which was on file for a separate case in Florida.
If Kodak fails to comply with the judge’s DNA order, he could be jailed for contempt of court. Neither the rapper nor his legal team had responded to the order as of April 3.
