Rapper Kodak Black was all smiles as he strode out of a South Carolina jail after posting bail and being conditrionally released for a criminal sexual conduct charge on Thursday afternoon. The Pompano Bay, Florida, native posted $100,000 bond before leaving the Florence County Detention Center.
Shortly after being released, Kodak Black took to Instagram to share some words of exuberance with his 1.5 million followers, telling them in part that he "happy to finally be going home to my family and friends. I look forward to clearing my name in the very near future."
He also thanked his attorneys and expressed how eager he was to get back to work in the studio. The post garnered nearly 200,000 likes. The full text of his message can be read below.
"He's doing great," Kodak Black's defense lawyer Beattie Ashmore told the Sun Sentinel shortly after he was released. "He's really doing great, he's very happy to be out in the fresh air."
Kodak Black's accuser has not been identified by name but the Sun Sentinel described the woman as a fan the rapper. The 19-year-old born Dieuson Octave was arrested Monday for the alleged assault that his accuser said happened in a South Carolina nightclub in early February.
The police warrant for Kodak Black's arrest was issued May 26 and says in part that the rapper "forced the victim onto the bed in the room and then onto the floor of the room," before he "attacked the victim orally," XXL reported. After the accuser "repeatedly told the defendant no and to stop," the warrant reads.
Though Kodak Black has been freed on bail, he is still facing the possibility of being sentenced to as many as 30 years in prison if he is convicted.
Kodak Black was previously sentenced to 120 days in jail for charges from August that included possession of a firearm and robbery.
