Pompano Beach, FL

Kodak Black has been battling a nagging legal issue but there might be some relief coming soon if the words of his new attorney can be believed. After hints last week that the Florida rapper might only need to serve a month of his recently announced one-year sentence, his new representation seems confident that will actually come to pass.

Brett Clarkson of local outlet The Sun-Sentinel has been covering Kodak’s case and got in contact with Bradford Cohen, the “Tunnel Vision” artist’s new lawyer. Kodak, born Dieuson Octave, let go of his previous lawyers and has enrolled in a 30-day life skills course. According to a conversation between Cohen and Clarkson, Kodak’s previous time served and the completion of the course could lead to his early release.

Kodak has been behind bars since February for violating probation and was handed his current 364-day sentence on May 4. Judge Michael Lynch of the Broward Circuit Court was lenient on the 19-year-old, who faced a potential eight-year sentence. If Kodak completes the course, he’ll have to serve a sentence of 180 days with the time served counting toward that. Even with the good news here, Future’s Nobody Safe Tour has kicked off without Project Baby.
