Kodak Black To Be Released From Florida Jail Months After Drug Bust

Kodak Black

The Pompano Beach, Florida-bred rapper has been behind bars since his December 2023 arrest.

Kodak Black is expected to be released from a Florida jail as early as Wednesday night (February 21). According to an Instagram post from the rapper’s attorney Bradford Cohen, Kodak Black pleaded guilty to just one count of failure to report police contact and his federal probation is now over.

As he explained in the caption, “Federal Probation terminated with time served. In the Southern District of Florida Judge Martinez dismissed all substantive counts and Kodak plead to sole violation of failure to report police contact. Time served and he should be released by tonight. With my co counsel @skywriter.esq @kodakblack.”

Broward County officers arrested Kodak Black in December 2023 after they found him asleep at the wheel of his vehicle. Officers allegedly discovered a “white chunky substance” during a search and claimed it tested positive for cocaine. Kodak Black was originally booked for cocaine possession, but prosecutors didn’t pursue the charge. Instead, they charged him with possession of oxycodone last month, but Cohen filed a motion to dismiss the charge, saying his client had a prescription for the drug.

“It’s oxycodone that Kodak had a prescription for and not an illegal substance,” Cohen wrote on social media. “Knowing that the officer substantially misrepresented his observations, the Broward State Atty Office still filed the charge. Unbelievable and it will not be tolerated. This level of abuse of power by the arresting officer is disgusting.”

Earlier this month, Kodak Black convinced a Florida judge to dismiss the drug charge. During the hearing, Judge Barbara Duffy said prosecutors failed to “refute or negate the material fact that the defendant had an oxycodone prescription filled by a pharmacy.”

Cohen reacted to Duffy’s decision on Instagram, posting a photo of the judge’s order with the caption, “Motion to Dismiss @kodakblack new case for possession of ‘cocaine’ that was actually oxycodone….GRANTED. I will leave that right here. We have moved to have his bond reinstated. With my friends for over 20 years, @skywriter.esq and Fred Haddad.”
