Kodak Black is still incarcerated, but he is only facing 120 days in jail for two drug charges. Kodak made a plea of no contest to a misdemeanor charge of possession of 20 grams or less of marijuana and one misdemeanor charge of use or possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
According to Sun Sentinel;
“At the end of the day, for St. Lucie County, I think he did well,” said his attorney, James Regan.
Octave pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of possession of 20 grams or less of cannabis, and a misdemeanor charge of use or possession of drug paraphernalia.
His driver’s license will also be suspended for a year, and he must pay court costs of $298, court records show.
The case stemmed from a Dec. 25, 2015 traffic stop on Florida’s Turnpike in St. Lucie County. When Octave failed to appear in court on July 25 in connection with that case, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest. At the time, he was in jail in Broward.

But the young rapper’s legal saga is expected to continue.
Although St. Lucie County jail records listed his expected release date as Nov. 30, 2016, he still faces a charge of criminal sexual conduct in South Carolina.
According to the Florence County Sheriff’s Office, Octave is accused of committing sexual battery at a hotel in Florence around the time he played a show at a club in that city earlier this year.
