Kodak Black Could Reportedly Be Facing 10 Years In Prison
It was reported this past weekend that Kodak Black was arrested before his scheduled performance at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami–and now, new information about this situation is emerging.
At the time of Kodak’s arrest, it was reported that it was the result of “an extensive investigation conducted by the U.S. Marshals, ATF, and Miami-Dade Police Department’s North Side Gang Unit,” though it was still unclear what the exact charge was, other than the fact that it was firearm-related.
The Miami Herald offered some clarification surrounding the situation on Monday, expanding on these firearm-related charges. According to their reports, the rapper appeared in Federal Court on Monday, where it was revealed that the rapper allegedly lied on an official document while applying to purchase a gun.
According to Black’s defense, the rapper checked “no” on the Firearm Transaction Record (Form 4473) when asked if he was currently under indictment for a crime. This, of course, is false since back in April, the Florida native was charged with raping a high school student in South Carolina.
Prosecutors are set to return to court on Wednesday with a request that the judge keep Black detained at the Federal Detention Center in Miami. According to reports from The Blast, Kodak is facing 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
As you might already know, this situation is only the latest in a laundry list of legal woes surrounding the rapper. It was only last month that Kodak Black was arrested on drug and weapons charges while he tried to cross into the United States from Canada.
