Even though Donald Trump commuted Kodak Black's sentence this week, the rapper isn't in the clear just yet.
Kodak still has an outstanding sexual assault case, after he was indicted for allegedly raping a woman in South Carolina after a 2016 show. According to TMZ, prosecutors are looking to pursue the case until there's either a trial, or a plea deal sorted out. Florence County solicitor Ed Clements says reaching a verdict in the case has been delayed multiple times because of the pandemic, and as of right now, there's not even a court date scheduled. Regardless, prosecutors are keen to "aggressively" pursue the case further, per TMZ.
"Aggressively prosecute? It’s been four years," Kodak's South Carolina attorney Beattie Ashmore told TMZ. "That speaks volumes. Kodak was on bond and on tour for two years before his federal case even began. Ed’s a very fine and experienced prosecutor and I look forward to once again speaking with him about this case. It’s been awhile." If convicted, he could face up to 30 years in prison.
In the meantime, Kodak will be released from prison after serving half of his 46-month term. On Wednesday, Kodak took to Twitter where he thanked the former president for commuting his sentence.
