Dieuson Octave, aka Kodak Black, was sentenced to 120 days in jail after pleading no contest to a misdemeanour charge of possession of 20 grams or less of cannabis, and a misdemeanour charge of use or possession of drug paraphernalia, the Sun Sentinel has reported.
The 19-year-old rapper, from Pompano Beach in Florida, won’t serve the entire four months because he was given credit for the time already spent behind bars.
“At the end of the day, for St Lucie County, I think he did well,” said his lawyer James Regan.
His driving licence will also be suspended for a year, and he must pay court costs of $298, court records show.
The most recent hearing on Monday resulted after a traffic stop on Christmas Day last year in St Lucie County, Florida. A warrant was issued when Octave failed to appear in court in July, but he was in jail in Broward County at the time of the court date.
In August, Octave accepted a plea deal on charges that included possession of a firearm by a delinquent and robbery. He was sentenced to one year of house arrest and five years’ probation on those charges and was scheduled to be released from jail in Broward County, Florida, when two additional warrants were discovered.
According to the Sun Sentinel, Octave will be released from St Lucie County jail on November 30, but the rapper still faces a sexual battery charge in South Carolina. The crime carries a maximum of 30 years in prison.
