After news broke yesterday that Kodak Black would be released from prison on house arrest, a new report from the Sun Sentinel has claimed that during the process of being released 2 further active warrants were discovered against his name, so he will in fact not be released.
The Sun Sentinel is reporting that during the process of being released from Broward main jail in downtown Fort Lauderdale, police discovered a warrant for the 19 year-old rapper in St. Lucie County, Florida and another warrant out of Florence, South Carolina. It remains unclear why the warrants weren’t discovered before the release process.
“One of them is a no-bond hold,” said Joy Oglesby, spokeswoman for the Broward Sheriff said today (Aug. 17) to XXL. “At this point he’s still going to be in jail. He’s not going to be released.” Kodak’s lawyer has so far declined to comment on the article.
Kodak was supposed to be released from jail today, but now it looks more than likely that won’t be happening.
The Pompano Beach, Florida rapper was sentenced yesterday to a year of house arrest and five years of probation. An Atlantic Records legal executive named Michael Kushner testified on Kodak’s behalf, saying he’s one of the most important recent signings for the major label.
Kodak was facing charges including false imprisonment and possession of a firearm by a delinquent, along with other charges that carried a maximum penalty of 55 years in prison.
