Kodak Black was denied bail when he appeared before a judge in Broward County on Friday afternoon.
The “Tunnel Vision” rapper, born Dieuson Octave, was arrested in Florida late Thursday evening and slapped with seven charges ranging from child neglect to weed possession and grand theft of a firearm. The serious charges were laid out against him while he was serving a one-year house arrest sentence for a previous case and let’s not forget that he was on probation. His attorney asked the judge to grant him bail but Broward Judge Joel Lazarus denied the request and ordered him back in the slammer.
Cops obtained a warrant and raided his Broward County home on Thursday after someone tipped them off about his antics on Instagram Live. The prosecutor says someone called the cops after noticing weed and a gun in close proximity to a child while Kodak Black was on Instagram Live. Police then got a search warrant and swarmed the home where they uncovered marijuana and the weapon. The feds also took his cellphone all while it was still live streaming on Instagram.
Kodak Black was charged with neglect child without great bodily harm, two charges of possession of weapon or ammo by a felon, grand theft of firearm, possession of marijuana over 20 grams, and two probation violation charges. These charges carry heavy penalties in Florida if found guilty and to make matters worse, he is on probation and house arrest.
Kodak legal troubles are nowhere near over because he is currently awaiting trial for a previous sexual assault charge following an indictment in October last year. Last year he served a few weeks in jail for probation violation. He was lucky to be released after serving a month in the slammer because he completed a life skills course. You can now conclude that he didn’t learn a thing from that course.
