Kodak Black Charged With Raping High School Girl in South Carolina

April 05, 2019GWL Staff

Rapper Kodak Black, who is currently on tour, have been reportedly slapped with rape charges in South Carolina after he allegedly sexually assaulted a high school-aged girl after a concert in Florence back in 2016.

According to GossipOnThis: South Carolina prosecutors are giving the "ZEZE" rapper until summer or fall to return to the state to answer to a criminal first-degree sexual conduct charge.

“I’m hoping to get it up for disposition by then,” 12th Circuit Solicity Ed Clements said Thursday (Apr. 4) after announcing that the trial that was tentatively scheduled for April was pushed back to the summer or fall.

The State reports that he committed the crime in a hotel room after performing at a concert in Florence, Clements. An arrest warrant accuses the 21-year-old rapper of committing the sexual assault in February 2016.

Kodak Black, who was born named Dieuson Octave, was arrested on the sexual assault charge in November 2016, WMBF reported.

According to the arrest warrant, Kodak Black forced the girl onto the bed, then the floor where he committed sexual battery, although she “repeatedly told the defendant no and to stop. The defendant did not stop.” He also bit the girl on the “neck and her right breast,” injuries that were documented in a rape kit, the arrest warrant said.

The hip hop star was released on a $100,000 bond, WPDE reported. After he was released, Kodak Black agreed to be swabbed and the prosecutor’s office has his DNA, Clements told The State.

“We are slowly but steadily moving toward a disposition,” said Clements, who told The State the rapper could face a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison if convicted, but there are several lesser sentences he could face related to the same criminal sexual conduct charge. “I want to do justice for the victim, whatever that takes.”

Attorneys Beattie Ashmore and Robert E. Lee are representing the rapper, who has been “arrested four times in Florida,” the Florence Morning News reported.
