Kodak Black Still In Custody Following Sexual Battery Accusation
Kodak Black, the 19-year-old Florida rapper born Dieuson Octave, was expected to be released from jail in Broward County last week on a plea-bargained sentence of one year house arrest and five years probation, but his exit from custody was postponed when authorities discovered two outstanding warrants against him. According to The Sun Sentinel, one of those warrants is for two misdemeanor cannabis-related charges in Florida’s St. Lucie County, while the other warrant is significantly more severe: a felony sexual battery charge in South Carolina. “According to investigators, on or about February 7, 2016 Octave is alleged to have engaged in the sexual battery of the victim at a hotel located at 2120 West Lucas Street, Florence, SC,” Major Michael M. Nunn, a spokesman for the Florence County Sheriff’s Office, told The Sun Sentinel. Octave’s attorney Gary Kollin declined to comment.
