In addition to the time behind bars, Kodak is facing a fine of $250,000 and three years of supervision following a release. Kodak allegedly filed the Firearms Transaction Record forms earlier this year at a gun store in Hialeah, Florida called Lou's Police Distributors.
Kodak Black's recent run-in with the law was over applications to purchase guns, TMZ reports.
Federal prosecutors are saying the Florida rapper lied on said applications in a two-count indictment that was filed in the Southern District of Florida. Prosecutors are alleging that Kodak lied on two separate occasions and was able to purchase guns after completing one of the applications (Firearms Transaction Record a.k.a. Form 4473). The alleged lie? Kodak claimed he was not under indictment by checking the "no" box on the form. The Dying to Live rapper was indicted for sexually assaulting a teenage girl in 2016. He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted on charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
"When you throw around legal terms like indictment, information, or anything like that where someone's not an attorney, [the federal government is] making the assumption that you know what that means," Bradford Cohen, Kodak's attorney, said about the charges..
