Kodak Black can breathe a little easier after a judge officially ended his probation, meaning he is a completely free man.

On August 27, court docs were filed in Kodak’s criminal case explaining that the court is terminating his probation based on the recommendation of the Department of Corrections.

As a result, the case is officially closed.

Kodak was released from jail on August 18, much earlier than expected. His first stop was to see his mother and young son.

Back in April, the rapper was sentenced to one year in county jail even though he was facing up to 12 years behind bars. Kodak Black pled guilty to two probation violations, including driving on a suspended license and “associating with people committing crimes.”

As The Blast previously reported, police witnessed the rapper in the presence of cannabis and ammunition during an Instagram Live stream. His powerhouse attorney, Bradford Cohen, argued that there was no way to prove that the weed and ammo from the video could be determined to be authentic, and the charges should be dropped.

The violation charges were dropped and other charges, including child neglect, that were connected to a police raid on his home, were also dropped.
