Kodak Black Sentenced For Marijuana and Weapons Charges

Wednesday, Apr 18, 2018

The judge has spoken: Kodak Black sentenced for marijuana and weapons charges from an arrest back in January.



Oft-troubled rapper Kodak Black is in the news again, but this time, it’s not for anything new. The 20-year-old rapper is facing the repercussions stemming from a January arrest, and it looks like he will be serving some additional jail-time.

After biding his time in a  South Florida jail, Kodack Black has finally been sentenced for a slew of marijuana and gun-related charges.

According to court records, Black, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, has been sentenced to serve 364 days behind bars.

The good news for Octave, however, is he will have the opportunity to get out on parole early on good behavior. As it stands, Black has already served 90 days in jail, which will be counted towards his sentence.

Black was originally arrested back on January 18th, after the rapper was caught on Instagram live flaunting and brandishing firearms and smoking weed with several other people, in front of an infant.
