22 year old rapper, Kodak Black pleaded guilty to falsifying information on background forms to buy four firearms.
Back in May He was arrested before his set at Miami’s Rolling Loud festival.
One of the guns kodak bought was used in an attempted shooting in March. According to a Prosecutor “a rival rap artist was the intended target”. But he has not been charged in relation to that shooting.
After he was alleged to have beaten up a prison guard while awaiting sentencing, His crime had him facing maximum of 10 years in prison. However, US District Judge Federico Moreno acknowledged that Kodak had made many donations to charity in the past. Therefore, his sentence was reduced to nearly 4 years.
Black’s lawyer Bradford Cohen told BBC News: “After the court was apprised of all the facts and circumstances of this case and the good charitable work that Bill has done over the years, the court rejected the government’s request of 96 months and sentenced Bill to 46 months.”
Kodak is not new to this as he has had a number of legal charges and times behind bar in recent years, and is also known for his violent lyrics.
