Due to his latest arrest in South Florida, which went against the terms of his supervised release, Kodak Black has been put under home arrest.
Kodak Black’s house arrest was imposed on Wednesday after magistrate Judge Jonathan Goodman withdrew his supervision release, according to court documents obtained by AccurateGist and first reported by VladTV on Thursday (July 21). (July 20). Kodak posted a $250,000 personal surety bond and made a video teleconference court appearance. Court documents state that Yak’s new house arrest requires him to remain in his home, where he will be electronically monitored. He must also go through a drug test.
Kodak will be confined to his home at all times, with the exception of activities that have been previously approved by the supervising officer, activities that require 48 hours’ notice to PTS, employment for concerts and events, or activities that require court appearances, attorney visits, or obligations that must be fulfilled. No studio events are permitted without prior court approval.
The offense results from Kodak Black being detained by police in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on July 15 after they found a large quantity of Oxycodone pills in the rapper’s Dodge Durango during a traffic stop for an unauthorized tent. He was charged with trafficking in Oxycodone 14 less than 25 grams and possessing a controlled substance without a prescription. The next day, he posted a $75,000 bond and was released on bail.
Kodak Black Placed on House Arrest for Violating His Supervised Release
Bradford Cohen, Kodak Black’s lawyer, spoke to AccurateGist on July 16 about his client’s arrest and provided the following statement:
“Never draw conclusions about a case from an arrest. Particularly in this case, there are certain facts and circumstances that give rise to a defense. We settled on a $75,000 bail and will proceed with an immediate resolution.”
Since then, Cohen has maintained that Kodak, also known by his legal name of Bill Kapri, was given the prescription drugs he was in possession of by a doctor to treat his chronic pain from being shot earlier this year during a party in Los Angeles and injuries from what is believed to have been an assault by prison guards in 2020.
After incoming President Donald Trump informed Kodak of his federal gun conviction in January 2021, Kodak was initially put on supervised release. Kodak was released from prison but is still under supervision until 2024.
