Pompano Beach, Fla. rapper Kodak Black was released from a South Carolina jail today after posting $100,000 bond on a charge of criminal sexual conduct, the Sun Sentinel reports.
The 19-year-old entertainer celebrated his a release with an Instagram post showing a picture of Black, whose given name is Dieuson Octave, with a wide Kool-Aid grin, as he walks out of a building, seemingly the jail in Florence County, S.C., where he is facing the charge.
“I’m happy to be finally going back home to my family and friends,” the Instagram post reads. “I look forward to clearing my name in the near future.”
I’m happy to finally be going home to my family and friends. I look forward to clearing my name in the very near future. I want to thank God, my family, my team (Vanessa, Phatboy and James McMillan), Atlantic Records, my lawyers and all of my fans for your continuous love and support. I can’t wait to get back to doing what I love most – working at being the illest rapper alive.
He was extradited from Florida to South Carolina to face sexual assault charges stemming from an alleged incident in a Florence hotel room around Feb. 7, the daily newspaper reported. The warrant for Octave states that he “forced the victim onto the bed in the room and then onto the floor of the room.”
Kodak is accused of forcefully removing the victim’s underwear, orally assaulted her and penetrated her without consent. The victim reportedly told Kodak “no” and “to stop.” The police report said that he also bit the victim on her neck and chest and that those injuries were confirmed by a sexual assault kit.
The victim’s age and identity are withheld in the warrant.
