Kodak Black Remains In Prison, Drug Possession Charges Dismissed
Kodak Black‘s Florida drug possession charges have been dismissed, but the rapper will still remain in federal lockup for the time being.
According to The Associated Press, the charge was dismissed on Friday (February 9), after Judge Barbara Duffy told prosecutors that they couldn’t confirm, or refute, whether the rapper (real name Bill Kapri) had a prescription for oxycodone.
Kodak Black’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, is trying to get his client’s separate tampering charge dismissed as well. Cohen also said that he hopes the dismissal of his tampering charge will prompt the Miami federal detention center to free his client.
According to the police report, officers approached Kodak’s Bentley when they observed the vehicle parked on an active roadway. When they approached the vehicle, they claimed they could smell alcohol and upon searching the car found cannabis rolling paper, cannabis residue, and white powder.
They also claimed that Kodak’s mouth was full of white powder.
