Kodak Black's New Year Still Doesn't Come With A Release From Prison


Kodak Black's pleas are falling on deaf ears.

Federal prosecutors denied his attempts to reduce his sentence because his motion failed to follow legal procedures.

"He has not presented 'extraordinary and compelling reasons' supporting his request for release," assistant U.S. Attorney Bruce O. Brown wrote. "Stated more correction, (Kodak Black) has not presented ANY reason supporting his request for release. He merely states he is not an evil person and promises to participate in community-based programs aimed at helping the 'younger generation.' That simply is inadequate pursuant to the statute."

Black's current 46-month sentence is a lot lighter than the 10 years he was originally facing, so a reduced sentence isn't deemed necessary.

Black hand wrote the motion requesting a compassionate release.

"With all due deference, I come in truth," he wrote. "I acknowledge my mistakes and I take full responsibility for my actions. I am not a evil or demented person. I am salvageble and I have the ability and potential to live a prosperous and positive life."

Kodak is scheduled to be released on Nov. 3, 2022, after serving three-and-a-half years on federal firearms charges. He could be released to a halfway house this year.
