After being hit with a lighter sentencing than he was facing, Kodak Black is still not done facing the consequences of “stupid things that young people do”. So what’s the latest on Kodak Black, and how many years is he facing now?
Kodak Black is facing 60 years in federal prison along with the 46 months in prison he was sentenced to on November 13, 2019.
Now Kodak is facing two new felony counts for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. One of the charges dates back to January of 2019, when Kodak purchased a firearm. The second offense came from when he was arrested in Miami back in May of 2019, and a firearm was found on him.
What does this mean for Kodak? 30 years in prison for each count, totaling a max sentencing of 60 years in prison.
Kodak Black’s lawyer issues a statement to XXL, “This is what happens when the government feels like they lost when a young man [gets] 46 months on a filing a false document,” says Bradford Cohen. “Miami has charged him with the purchase of the weapons, because of a little rarely known law if you had a juvenile prior you can’t possess a weapon until you are 24. The Miami case will be dealt with very soon.”
What’s next for Kodak Black?
Things aren’t looking to good for Kodak Black, as U.S Distric Judge, Federico A. Moreno stated to him, “Young people do stupid things,” Judge Federico Moreno tells Kodak. “But the problem is that you’ve been doing stupid things since you were 15.”
Kodak has no choice but to accept and take full responsibility for his actions. Actions that now will cost him many years of his life beings bars. “I’m sorry for the actions that led me for where I’m standing. I do take full responsibility for my mishap,” Kodak told Moreno, at his sentencing on Wednesday November 13.
