Florida rapper Kodak Black is realizing just how tough jail is. The hip-hop star is reportedly in solitary confinement for a violation.
According to reports, an unauthorized phone call ultimately sealed KB’s fate.
It appears from legal docs he was taken out of general population after he used the prison phone to have someone patch him through to another person to whom he was not supposed to speak. He was given 30 days in the hole for that violation. (TMZ)
Recently, the Florida native appeared in court donning a new hairstyle and making a plea for his freedom.
Appearing in Broward County court without his distinctive dreadlocks; Black, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, entered the not guilty pleas for possession of cannabis and possession of ammunition. Last week, Octave had charges against him of possession of a weapon or ammunition by a delinquent, grand theft of a firearm, and child neglect dropped by the State of Florida. (Local 10 News)
Last month, buzz developed about Kodak having three charges dropped from his recent house raid arrest.
The State of Florida dismissed one charge each — for possession of a weapon or ammunition by a delinquent, grand theft of a firearm, and child neglect … according to Kodak’s attorney, Bradford Cohen. Kodak’s still facing other charges, including marijuana possession and possession of ammunition. He’s still in jail for a probation violation. (TMZ)
A few weeks ago, reports surfaced about Kodak’s weapons and drugs case judge getting dismissed.
Broward County senior Judge Joel Lazarus accidentally spoke into a hot microphone over a live internet broadcast January 19 while preparing for first appearance hearings and told a prosecutor that he would “double the bond to those that take place in my neighborhood.” He then elaborated and said, “Closer to my house, the higher the bond. That was always the Lazarus rule.” He later claimed to be joking, but the Broward County Chief Judge barred Lazarus from presiding over first appearance court in the future, and also from anything involving criminal court over the “clearly inappropriate” statement.
