Kodak Black should be coming home today or tomorrow.
Kodak Black was arrested back in May, stemming from outstanding warrants from the previous year, the charges of which were reportedly false imprisonment, robbery without a weapon, operating a vehicle without a viable license and possession of marijuana. We haven't received much of an update on the Florida rapper's situation since, but today theres some good news. He's headed home.
Kodak appeared in court in Fort Lauderdale today, where he reportedly pleaded no contest to all charges. The VIP of Legal at Kodak's label, Atlantic Records, reportedly spoke on the rapper's behalf, telling the judge, "He's only at the very beginning of a very promising career […] It is our hope that the court will agree that he be given the opportunity to turn his life around."
Judge Lisa Porter granted Kodak's plea, reportedly telling the young artist, "I will give you an opportunity, Mr Octave, to prove yourself here, and be a productive member of society […] What happens from here on out is up to you."
Kodak must remain under house arrest for one year, five years of probation, according to SunSentinel reporter. He'll also be required to do community service and take anger management classes. Even with house arrest, Kodak will be allowed to tour internationally, as the judge deferred adjudication.
Welcome home Kodak!
