Bill K. Kapri, aka Florida rapper Kodak Black, is currently serving time in Broward County Jail on probation violation charges of driving with a suspended license and associating with people engaged in criminal activity. According to The Blast and Broward County records viewed by Pitchfork, Kapri’s expected release date from jail has been moved to August 18, 2018. (Kapri’s lawyer Bradford Cohen previously told Pitchfork that his client could be out of jail by September 17.) According to The Blast, the judge reportedly granted a motion from Kapri’s lawyers to recognize 30 additional days of time-served for Kapri. Pitchfork has contacted Kapri’s lawyers for comment and more information.
Kapri was arrested and charged with multiple felonies in January 2018 after an Instagram Live broadcast showed a young child in the vicinity of marijuana and a handgun. Kapri’s laywers later argued that there was no evidence that the guns and drugs in the video were real. All felony charges were dropped and Kapri entered an open plea to probation violation charges.
