After spending 91 days in lockup for robbery, false imprisonment, marijuana possession and driving without a driver’s license, Kodak Black was due to be released from jail yesterday.
Real name Dieuson Octave, Black hit a dead end while his release was being processed. A further two active arrest warrants popped up under his name during the processing.
While on the phone to Complex, Joy Oglesby of the Broward Sheriff’s Office said, “We don’t have any information,” he continued on by saying, “We are not releasing him because there are two active warrants and one of those warrants is a no bond hold.”
The judge ruling Kodak’s case was lenient on him by helping him escape a 55-year max sentence on the basis that he stays out of trouble. “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.”
19-year-old Black was expected to be released from jail on the condition that he would be under house arrest for a year with five years probation as well as community service and anger management in exchange for that life sentence.
This condition for Black’s release is no more than a slap on the wrist, bearing in mind that he was arrested on marijuana and weapons possession in April, after he led the police on a car chase, and again in May.
Looks like fans have keep up with the #KodakFree. Fingers crossed trouble will no longer follow him.
