Judge Rejects Kodak Black's Request For Shorter Sentence

Publish date:

Kodak Black's 46-month sentence has been upheld by a judge -- and he will not be walking away from prison anytime soon.

According to BOSSIP, A panel of judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit last week denied Kodak's bid to get his sentence reversed because he believed the judge was wrong in meting it out in the first place.

It's not all bad news for Kodak. Earlier this month, weapons charges he racked up back in November 2019 in Florida were dismissed.

The rapper was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in Miami, Florida, after Kodak's attorney Bradford Cohen and State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle worked out a deal. Kodak will now enter court-ordered drug treatment.

"The State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and her team sat down with me and listened to everything I had to say about Kodak," Cohen said in a statement to The Blast.

He continued, "At the end of the conversation, they were concerned that he couldn't get into the court-ordered drug treatment with an open case and a max security prison. They agreed that the fair thing to do was to dismiss the case, so he can attend drug treatment and a lower security prison."

Kodak is currently serving a three year and ten-month federal prison sentence in a maximum-security prison in Kentucky.
