Even though Kodak Black has been freed on his federal gun-related charges by former President Trump, authorities in South Carolina have a sexual assault case against the rapper that will not get a pardon.
12th Circuit Solicitor in Florence County, South Carolina Ed Clements says that even though Kodak’s case and other court proceedings have been disrupted by COVID-19, prosecutors will be “aggressively” pursuing a plea deal or a trial for Black.
Prosecutors in South Carolina alleging that Kodak, whose legal name is Bill Kapri, forced himself onto an 18-year-old woman after a concert n 2016. The victim claimed Black bit her neck, breast and raped her.
Beattie Ashmore, Kodak’s lawyer in South Carolina, adamantly says, “Aggressively prosecute? It’s been four years. That speaks volumes. Kodak was on bond and on tour for two years before his federal case even began. Ed’s a very fine and experienced prosecutor and I look forward to once again speaking with him about this case. It’s been awhile.”
