“I apologize to Miss [victim’s name] and am hopeful we can all move forward,” he said. Adding, “I wish her the best in her life.”

In this case, the rapper was charged with first-degree sexual assault back in 2016, after he was accused of attacking a teenage high school student in a hotel room after his performance. At the time, the student reported the alleged incident to the school nurse.
Kodak’s powerhouse lawyer — Bradford Cohen — issued a statement on the plea agreement, saying, “Kodak took a plea to a change of charge to assault, and got an 18 months sentence. The local counsel, in this case, was amazing and did a great job. We are all happy he is able to move past this 5-year-old case. #kodakmoment He has been on such a positive and fantastic route, donating anonymously to great causes, making amazing music, and being a great Dad.”
