Kodak Black pleaded guilty to assaulting a teenage girl in a South Carolina hotel room in 2016. Black, 23, was originally charged with sexual assault, but pleaded guilty to a non-sex offense, first degree assault and battery. The rapper, whose legal name is Bill Kapri, was given a 10-year suspended sentence and 18 months’ probation as part of the deal.
Black was 18 when he was charged with sexually assaulting a high school student in February 2016 after a concert in Florence, South Carolina. In late 2019, the rapper was sentenced to nearly four years in prison on an unrelated federal gun charge. His sentence was commuted by former President Donald Trump on Trump’s last full day in office, Jan. 19, 2021.
