MIAMI (CelebrityAccess) – Kodak Black is expected to plead guilty to federal weapons charges, according to The Associated Press. The decision arrives months after the rapper’s original plea of innocence.
In May, prosecutors charged the 21-year-old for crimes that involve falsifying information on federal forms to purchase three firearms. Prosecutors say one of the weapons purchased by Black was found at the scene of a South Florida shooting.
Black has remained in a federal detention center in Miami since his arrest. A federal judge denied his request for bond saying he was “danger to the community” based on his lengthy criminal record, reports the AP. If convicted, Black, who is also currently facing drug, weapons and sexual assault charges in other states, could face up to eight years in prison.
A hearing is set for Thursday (Aug. 22) in Miami federal court.
