Kodak Black was sentenced to three years and 10 months in federal prison today.
U.S. District Court Judge Federico Moreno sentenced the rap star for lying about his criminal record while purchasing or trying to purchase six pistols on two separate occasions at Lou’s Police and Security Equipment in Hialeah.
Pitchfork reported, he maximum sentence he could have received for the federal violation was 10 years.
The rapper was arrested on May 11 while en route to perform at the Rolling Loud festival. Though he was granted release on $550,000 bond on May 15, a federal judge revoked it less than three weeks later, calling him a “a danger to the community because he wants to have access to guns.” Kodak pleaded guilty to the charges in late August.
Kodak was found guilty of lying while trying to purchase firearms on two separate occasions, indicating on paperwork “that he was not under indictment or information in any court for a felony, or any other crime for which the judge could imprison him for more than one year.” He had been previously indicted on sexual assault charges in South Carolina in 2016, and was out on bond at the time of his arrest in Miami. Kodak was also arrested in mid-April at the U.S.-Canada border for possession of marijuana and a firearm.
Kodak did have a photo of himself posted to his social media with a message to his fans, see below.
