Jan 21, 2021, 16:10pm EST — Kodak Black has been released from federal prison after Donald Trump commuted his sentence, but new legal trouble awaits the Florida rapper.
According to TMZ, Kodak Black’s 2016 sexual assault case is still pending and South Carolina prosecutors are looking to “aggressively” pursue the case until there’s a trial or a plea deal is worked out. Florence County Solicitor Ed Clements says the case has been delayed multiple times, due to the pandemic, since the rapper was indicted for allegedly raping a woman after a show.
“Aggressively prosecute? It’s been four years,” said Beattie Ashmore, Kodak Black’s South Carolina attorney. “That speaks volumes. Kodak was on bond and on tour for two years before his federal case even began. Ed’s a very fine and experienced prosecutor and I look forward to once again speaking with him about this case. It’s been awhile.”
Kodak Black was released from prison after serving half of his 46-month sentence for making a false statement on a federal document. While Trump commuted his sentence for a federal crime, it has no impact on cases in state court. If convicted, Kodak Black faces up to 30 years in state prison.
