Kodak Black Banned from South Carolina Due to Sexual Assault Charges
Kodak Black isn't allowed to set foot in South Carolina unless he's going to court, according to various sources.
Last week, the Floridian rapper — real name Dieuson Octave — was extradited to the Southern state to face charges of sexual assault. As we previously reported, the 19-year-old was accused of forcing himself on a woman after a performance in his hotel room, but his legal team have since denied the charges.
"According to investigators, on or about Feb. 7, 2016, Octave is alleged to have engaged in sexual battery of the victim at a hotel located at 2120 West Lucas Street, Florence, S.C.," said Major Michael M. Nun, a spokesman for the Florence County Sheriff's Office.
On December 1, Black posted a $100,000 bond in South Carolina after he was transferred from a jail cell in St. Lucie County, FL. Afterwards, he took to Instagram to thank all of his supporters.
"I'm happy to finally be going home to my family and friends," he wrote. "I look forward to clearing my name in the very near future. I want to thank God, my family, my team (Vanessa, Phatboy and James McMillan), Atlantic Records, my lawyers and all of my fans for your continuous love and support. I can't wait to get back to doing what I love most, working at being the illest rapper alive."
