Kodak Black is set to be released from jail sooner than expected. The rapper (civilian name Bill K. Kapri) is currently serving time in Broward County Jail on probation violation charges of driving with a suspended license and associating with people engaged in criminal activity. According to court documents obtained by both The Blast and Pitchfork, Kapri’s expected release date from jail has been moved to August 18, 2018. His lawyer Bradford Cohen previously told Pitchfork he’d be released September 17.
In a statement to Pitchfork, Kapri’s attorney Bradford Cohen said, “All I can say is, I work very hard to try and give all of my clients a second chance. We were lucky that the matter concerning Bill a/k/a Kodak was resolved in a way we felt was extremely fair by the prosecutor handling the matter. He looks forward to getting out and creating new music and spreading his charity work.”
Kapri was arrested and charged with multiple felonies in January after an Instagram Live broadcast showed a young child in the vicinity of marijuana and a handgun. His lawyers argued that there was no evidence that the guns and drugs depicted were real. As a result, all felony charges were dropped and Kapri entered an open plea deal to his probation violation charges.
In addition, the rapper is currently awaiting trial for unrelated sexual assault charges, for which he was indicted in October 2017.
