A couple of days after Kodak Black was extradited to South Carolina, details of the warrant for his alleged sexual battery have been revealed.
On Monday (Nov. 28), Kodak Black was released from St. Lucie County jail in his native Florida, and many were quick to deem him a newly free man. That was not the case. He was immediately extradited to South Carolina and placed in the custody of the state's authorities. It was reported that his move to South Carolina was due to a sexual assault charge stemming from an incident in early February in the city of Florence, where Kodak had performed a show. Details of the arrest warrant and of the alleged assault have now become available for the first time.
Kodak, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, is being charged with committing sexual battery in a Florence hotel room on (or about) Feb. 7, reports the Sun Sentinel. The warrant states that the 19-year-old rapper "forced the victim onto the bed in the room and then onto the floor of the room." Kodak is alleged to have forcefully removed the victim's underwear, assaulted her orally, and penetrated her without consent.
The victim repeatedly told Kodak "no" and "to stop," according to the warrant. Police report that Kodak also bit the victim on her neck and chest and that those injuries were confirmed by a sexual assault kit.
Neither the victim's age nor her identity has been disclosed in the warrant, which was signed by Judge Belinda B. Timmons on May 26. The victim has expressly identified Kodak as her attacker.
After his jail release on Monday, Kodak's lawyers in Florida said that they were confident that he would be absolved of the charge he faces in South Carolina. For this case, though, Kodak will be represented by Greenville, SC-based lawyer Beattie Ashmore, who declined to comment about her client's current situation.
In South Carolina, a criminal sexual conduct charge carries with it a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
