Please release me from prison, Kodak Black begs Trump

Published




American rapper, Kodak Black is turning to Donald Trump for help as he is begging the president to commute his prison sentence.

The rapper’s attorneys, Bradford Cohen and Jonathan Schwartz sent a petition to Trump asking the president to cut Kodak some slacks, TMZ reports.

Cohen points out that Kodak was sentenced to 46 months behind bars in his federal gun case, and claims the average sentence for the same crime is 18 months.

Also, Kodak is locked up in a maximum-security federal prison in Kentucky, but Cohen says it’s not warranted as he claims the Bureau of Prisons “erroneously” viewed Kodak as level 4 criminal history, paving the way for Kodak to be housed in a maximum-security facility.

Cohen claims that the judge only put Kodak at a level 2, which means he could be housed at a lower security prison.

Kodak’s attorneys also argue that he is being unfairly punished for assaulting a prison guard in Miami repeating their earlier claim that Kodak was set up and possibly drugged.

The rappers legal team also claims he was punished twice for the incident with the guard in Miami.

Cohen says Kodak was only supposed to get a 6-month sentence, but instead ended up with year-long punishment, which has kept him in total lockdown since last September, resulting in no phone calls or visits from anyone but his attorneys.

Trump is also being asked to consider the abuse Kodak allegedly suffering in prison which includes beatings at the hands of guards, religious suppression and mental abuse.

However, the rapper is suing the Federal Bureau of Prisons for alleged torture and denial of access to a rabbi, which his attorney’s claim is a violation of his constitutional rights.
