The details to Kodak Black‘s sexual assault case in South Carolina have surfaced and they sound quite disturbing.
Before you make your “Free Kodak Black” t-shirts and hashtags, you may want to check this out.
In case you missed it, the incarcerated rapper had been sitting in jail in Florida for most of this year on drug charges. He did his time and right when he thought he was getting out, he was served a warrant for sexual assault in South Carolina. He was extradited there to face those charges and they sound like something out of a Law & Order: SUV episode.
According to a copy of the warrant, Kodak Black threw the alleged victim on the floor, removed her underwear and then “licked her vagina and then put his penis into the victim’s vagina.” The warrant says the victim repeatedly told Black, born Dieuson Octave, “no” and to stop, but he carried on. The warrant also says that Black bit the victim on the neck and right breast. The injuries were confirmed with a sexual assault kit.
Black’s Florida-based legal team is confident that their client will be “vindicated.” His South Carolina attorney has not commented.
The Sun Sentinel reports:
Ed Clements, solicitor for the 12th Judicial Circuit in South Carolina, the equivalent of a Florida state attorney, said a bond could be set for Octave if prosecutors, defense attorneys, law enforcement and the accuser agree on conditions. If they don’t agree, Octave would appear in a bond hearing, possibly on Thursday.
Criminal sexual conduct in South Carolina carries a punishment of up to 30 years in prison.
Asked when Octave would face trial, Clements said it probably would be six months to a year from now.
The alleged incident happened while Black was in Florence, S.C. for a show in February 2015. Black was arrested in October 2015 in his hometown Pompano Beach, Fla. when he was accused of forcing a group of people into his car to question them about a break-in at his house. He was released on bond, but was arrested again in April 2016 for his connection to a drug deal.
Is it still Free Kodak Black or “smarten up Kodak Black?”
