After serving a four-month prison sentence in St. Lucie County, Florida, rapper Kodak Black was extradited to Florence, South Carolina, earlier this week to face charges for sexual assault. Although it has been known that the rapper would face charges after being released, the details of the charges were never revealed until now.
The arrest warrant for the 19-year-old rapper, real name Dieuson Octave, alleges that he “forced the victim onto the bed in the room and then onto the floor of the room,” the Sun Sentinel reports. Octave then allegedly “removed the victim’s underwear,” attacked the victim orally and then penetrated her.
According to the warrant, “the victim repeatedly told the defendant no and to stop. The defendant did not stop.” Police also say the rapper bit the victim on her chest and neck. A sexual assault kit confirmed the injuries. If found guilty, the rapper could face up to 30 years in prison.
Kodak Black’s lawyers, Gary Kollin and Allan Zamren, believe the rapper will be cleared of the charges. “We are firmly convinced that he will be vindicated in that charge and shortly be set free,” said Kollin.
Zamren also said Kodak Black was doing well. “The last time we both saw him was Nov. 7, a Monday, and he was doing well, and he calls us frequently. We spoke to him late last week.”
In September, Kodak Black was sentenced to 120 days in prison after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of possession of 20 grams or less of cannabis, plus a misdemeanor charge of use or possession of drug paraphernalia. After serving time in August and September, the rapper was scheduled to be released near the end of November.
Kodak Black has appeared on songs with DJ Khaled, Rae Sremmurd, Plies and was featured on French Montana’s hit song, “Lockjaw.”
