Kodak Black Officially Charged W/ Raping Teen Girl
Kodak Black has officially been charged for the 2016 rape of a teenaged girl in South Carolina, according to reports. Despite being in the midst of his “Dying to Live Tour,” he will have to return to South Carolina this summer or fall for the first trial date for this first-degree criminal sexual conduct charge. 12th Circuit Solicitor Ed Clements said this of the proceedings:
“We are slowly but steadily moving toward a disposition. I want to do justice for the victim – whatever that takes.”
After a Florence, South Carolina concert in February of 2016, police reports show that Kodak forced the victim onto a hotel bed, committing sexual battery while biting her neck and breasts. Reports also show that she repeatedly told him to stop. Her injuries were documented in a rape kit. Although she didn’t immediately report to the police, she told a nurse at her high school, who took the information to school officers. The case eventually ended up in the hands of the Florence County Sheriff’s Office. Kodak Black was arrested in November of 2016.
Kodak Black could face a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison if convicted of the charges.
