According to documents, Kodak’s attorney has asked Assistant United States Attorney Bruce Brown to recommend that the rapper get sentenced to a location that has a Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP).
Facilitated by the United States Federal Bureau of Prisons, RDAP is a 500-hour treatment program for inmates suffering from substance abuse issues. There are multiple benefits attached to the program, including the chance to have up to 12 months shaved off a prison sentence.
While Kodak’s lawyer notes that Brown previously advised Kodak that he’d benefit from the rehab program and that Brown even said he had no objection to granting the motion to recommend the rapper, there’s a chance Kodak won’t be eligible for the program. In the paperwork, the lawyer notes that Kodak is facing a pending charge that could affect his eligibility.
During his sentencing hearing last week, prosecutors alleged that Kodak badly injured a prison staff member who attempted to break up an altercation between Kodak and another inmate in October.
Kodak reportedly gripped the staffer’s testicles so hard that the man required medical attention. Prosecutors say Kodak was visibly intoxicated during the brawl. Reps for the 22-year-old rapper reportedly said that someone drugged Kodak 20 minutes before he got into a fight with an inmate. It’s unknown whether Kodak will be charged for this incident, but this could be the pending charge Kodak’s lawyer refers to in the new court documents regarding his RDAP request.
Kodak Black is currently incarcerated in Federal Detention Center, Miami.
