Kodak Black Could Get Out Of Jail Next Month
Kodak Black has been sentenced to 364 days, roughly a year, in county jail for violating his house arrest, reports Brett Clarkson of the Florida newspaper The Sun Sentinel. If he completes life skills courses in jail, however, he could apparently be out in a month.
The judge ordered that Octave, 19, must complete an anger management/life skills course. If he completes the course successfully, his sentence will be commuted from 365 days to 180 days, with credit for time served. That means he could be back to making hits within a month.
In court Thursday afternoon, the rapper acknowledged that his life and career were in the court’s hands. He also apologized to his mother, saying that when he heard her break down in tears outside the courtroom last week, it “pierced my heart.”
“We know we won’t let him down this time because Dieuson Octave, not Kodak Black, means so much more to us than him being a celebrity,” the rapper’s assistant, Vanessa Antoine, said.
“His extraordinary creativity and almost overnight success could lead us all to forget he is still a teenager facing temptation most adults would find difficult to manage,” Michael Kushner, of Atlantic Records, said.
