According to legal documents obtained by Complex, Kodak's attorney has filed a motion asking the court to recommend the rapper—whose legal name is Bill K. Kapri—be sentenced to a facility that offers the Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP). Kodak's legal team states rehab treatment was discussed during his recent sentencing, and that Assistant United States Attorney Bruce Brown advised the defendant would benefit from the program.
Administered by the United States Federal Bureau of Prisons, RDAP is a voluntary treatment program for prisoners who have a history of substance abuse. RDAP, which typically lasts for nine months, consists of group and one-on-one therapy sessions, as well as school and/or vocational activities. Those who enter the program live among other participating offenders in units separate from the population. Upon completion of the 500-hour program, inmates may receive a number of benefits for the rest of their incarceration. These include "limited financial rewards" and 12 months off their prison sentence. It's important to note, however, that inmates who've committed violent offenses are ineligible for the sentence reduction.
Kodak was allegedly involved in a prison fight last month, which prompted a security guard to intervene. According to Brown, Kodak retaliated by striking the guard twice and grabbing his testicles so aggressive "to the point where his abdomen and intestinal wall were breached." According to the Sun Sentinel, prosecutors said Kodak "was visibly under the influence of an unknown substance" during the attack. Kodak's legal team claimed the altercation was a set-up, and suggested their client was drugged.
"While a pending charge, if such be indicted, may affect the Defendant’s eligibility (for RDAP), the defense would ask the Court at this juncture to make the recommendation," the motion reads.
Kodak was sentenced to more than three years behind bars last week, after pleading guilty to federal weapons charges over the summer. The 22-year-old, who is also facing a sexual assault case in South Carolina, admitted to lying on background check forms to illegally purchase firearms. Days after he received the 46-month sentence, he was slapped with two additional counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. According to the Miami Herald, each of those charges carry a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
