In a hearing in a federal courtroom on Wednesday morning, U.S. District Court Judge, Federico Moreno said Kodak Black was a “danger to the community” based on his long rap sheet. Minutes later, the judge ruled that Kodak will remain detained until his trial.
Kodak Black was arrested earlier this month right before he was set to perform at Rolling Loud Miami. He was booked on charges related to falsifying information to purchase (at least) three firearms. A judge initially set Kodak’s bond at $550,000. Prosecutors appealed that judge’s decision. On Wednesday morning, a federal judge sided with prosecutors and ruled that Kodak will be held without bail until his trial date.
“I’m very concerned with the type of guns he wanted to get a hold of, and that he has a prior criminal history. He was out on bond (on another case) and he committed an offense.” U.S District Judge Federico Moreno said from the bench according to The Miami Herald @MiamiHerald.
Prosecutors allege that one of the guns Kodak purchased when he falsified the info, was connected to a shooting that took place in March. According to the feds, Kodak’s fingerprints were found on the gun that was left at the scene of the crime. No one was hit in the shooting. A Porsche Panamera that was seen at the scene of the crime was later found abandoned nearby. No word yet on if the Porsche was also connected to the rapper. Chances are, it probably will, when the prosecution releases all of the evidence related to the case, or when it comes up at trial, otherwise the Porsche likely wouldn’t have been mentioned at all.
