After being arrested back in May over outstanding warrants for false imprisonment, robbery without a weapon, operating a vehicle without a viable license, possession of a firearm by a delinquent and possession of marijuana, Kodak Black’s career looked over quicker than it began. But, we’re pleased to report that he is coming home soon.

Kodak was sentenced to one year of house arrest and five years of probation after he plead no contest. He will also have to do community service, go to anger management and community control supervision. The EVP of legal at Atlantic Records testified on his behalf in court, 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. We consider Mr. Octave to be one of our most important signings in recent years and are proud to have him on the Atlantic roster.”
After making her decision, judge Lisa Porter told Kodak:
“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.”
Another great takeaway, the judge withheld adjudication. So, he won’t be a convicted felon and free to tour internationally. He is expected to be released within the next few days, even as early as today. We’ll keep you up to date as this story develops.
