Rapper Kodak Black Pleads Guilty In Sexual Assault Case

Published

on

American rapper, Kodak Black has pleaded guilty in a legal case stemming from his assault of a high school student in 2016.

Kodak had been charged with allegedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl in February 2016 at a hotel. According to prosecutors, he pushed the girl into a wall and onto a bed before assaulting her, allegedly biting her breast and neck.

However, Kodak who was in court Wednesday April 28, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of first-degree assault and battery in a plea deal.

The rapper’s attorneys, Bradford Cohen and Beattie Ashmore told TMZ that their client who was originally indicted on a felony charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, copped a plea to a lesser charge to put the case behind him.

“Today Bill Kapri took a plea to the legal charge of assault, a non sex offense, and received 18 months probation,” his legal team said in a statement.

“This was a change of charge from the original charge. Having consistently denied these 5 year old allegations, he entered this plea in order to resolve the matter.” it added

12th Circuit Solicitor Ed Clements of Florence County, South Carolina, where the case originated, told WBTW that the victim agreed to the conditions of the plea deal. The deal specified that Kodak must also take full responsibility for the incident and publicly apologize to the victim, both of which he did in court, and that he must undergo counseling.

Kodak received a suspended 10 year sentence but will be on probation for 18 months. He will not wear an ankle monitor, but must let his probation officer know where he goes and where he lives.

The rapper will also not be allowed to use drugs, drink alcohol or have guns. If he successfully completes the 18-month probation, he won’t spend a day in prison for the case.

In January on his final full day in office, former President Trump granted commutation to Kodak Black, who was in prison at the time for falsifying information on federal forms to buy firearms in Miami on two separate occasions. The rapper admitted to lying on the forms and pleaded guilty in 2019.

The matronly woman shared the astonishing narration on a showing Nhyira FM’s ‘Ewiase Mu Nsem’. According to her, she has seen the missing Ghanaian musician in the marine world working happily as a mechanic.

She said in her narration“He has learnt how to fix cars, he has even bleached his skin,” she said and emphasized that Castro is not dead. She also said that Castro will come, you’ll see him because whilst I was there too for one month, people thought I was dead and they were planning my funeral,” she told the host.

Speaking about how she got there, she said it was after the death of her master whom she was serving as a maidservant. According to the woman, her boss gifted her a diamond ring and that was the beginning of all her sorrow.

In a report by adomfmonline.com, she recounted that “the ring housed a spirit which was the source of her boss’ wealth, which literally meant she was next to perform rituals for the said deity”.

The website reported her to have detailed that due to her Christian background, she declined to perform the ritual and by way of punishment and threat to convince her to do the ritual, she was spiritually transported undersea to serve whilst she was presumed dead in the real world.

In 2014, the “African Girls” hitmaker disappeared with one Janet Bandu at the Ada Estuary while on holiday with footballers, Asamoah and Baffour Gyan

According to multiple media reports, Castro and Miss Janet Bandu were drowned following a jet ski accident at Ada Estuary. While the jet ski involved in the accident was recovered on the same day of their disappearance, their bodies were not found, despite a search by the police. The pair remain missing to date.

Since he went missing, a lot of people have been asking what happens next; whether he would be declared dead or remain missing forever without any declaration? Seth F.T. Mireku Junior, a law student at the Ghana School of Law, tells Pulse.com.gh that Castro and Janet will be legally presumed dead after seven years.

According to him, Section 33 of Ghana’s Evidence Act, NRCD 323 stipulates that where a person has not been heard of for seven years despite diligent efforts (whether or not within that period) to find him, he is presumed to be dead.
