Kodak Black Reportedly Denied Bond In Weapons Case
Kodak Black was arrested earlier this month on federal and state weapons charges just before he was set to hit the stage at Rolling Loud. His bond was originally set at $500,000, but in court documents confirmed that he won’t be leaving jail until next week.
According to Complex, Kodak was allowed to be released on bond by the judge, but the government reportedly appealed in response to his very serious prior convictions. If you can recall, he was facing sexual assault charges against a teenage girl.
His lawyer responded to the appeal, offering 24-hour supervision on bond in lieu of another week in jail.
“My company is willing and able to escort and transport him back to the Southern District of Florida should the State of South Carolina subsequently release Mr. Kapri for home confinement within the Southern District of Florida pursuant to pre-trial release ordered by this court.”
Kodak’s judge reportedly decided that he would stay behind bars until the situation was straightened out. The 21-year-old rapper’s trial is currently scheduled to begin June 24, and he’s expected to remain behind bars until May 29 at the earliest.
