Kodak Black has entered a guilty plea in a legal case stemming from his assault of a high school student in 2016, as local CBS affiliate WBTW reports. The rapper was indicted on first degree sexual assault charges in 2017; he pleaded guilty to lesser charges of first-degree assault and battery under a plea deal.
He was accused of sexually assaulting a high school student in a hotel room following a concert in South Carolina. The victim, according to 12th Circuit Solicitor Ed Clements (as cited by WBTW), was present on a screen and agreed to all conditions of the plea deal, which included the rapper pleading guilty to the lesser charge, taking responsibility for his actions, undergoing counseling, and publicly apologizing for his actions.
Black, born name Bill Kapri, was sentenced to 10 years suspended to 18 months probation.
