Kodak Black To Remain In Federal Prison While Awaiting Court Ruling

Kodak Black will remain in federal prison for at least four more weeks while awaiting a ruling stemming from his alleged violation of probation.

According to documents obtained by AllHipHop, Kodak Black appeared in court for a hearing regarding the revocation of his supervised release on Monday (Jan. 22). While the hearing was scheduled as the last in Kodak’s case, presiding Judge Jose E. Martinez decided that he needs additional time to review the evidence before coming to a ruling, resulting in him scheduling an additional revocation hearing for February 21.

Kodak Black was arrested in December 2023 and charged with cocaine possession after a powdery white substance was found in a vehicle the rapper was operating. However, after tests determined the white substance was instead oxycodone, prosecutors charged him with possession of the prescription drug, which violates his supervised released.

Braford Cohen, Kodak’s attorney, has blasted Florida police and the prosecution with accusations of lying and abusing its power, as he claims his client was legally prescribed the pills. Cohen has since filed a motion seeking to dismiss the charges against Kodak, which he insists are fabricated.

“As stated when this new case first was filed, this was not cocaine and the officer was lying about his observations,” Cohen wrote on Instagram earlier this month. “We finally got the lab report…its oxycodone that Kodak had a prescription for and not an illegal substance.”

The attorney continued, adding “Knowing that the officer substantially misrepresented his observations, the Broward State Atty Office still filed the charge. Unbelievable and it will not be tolerated. This level of abuse of power by the arresting officer is disgusting. We will be seeking a new bond hearing and addressing these unethical practices by the police department.”

Kodak Black’s supervised released stems from the commutation of his prison sentence by then U.S. President Donald Trump.
