Kodak Black has filed a lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the warden of Kentucky’s Big Sandy high-security prison where he is currently being held for several incidents that happened during his reportedly ill-treated sentence.
One of his accusations, which the rapper refers to as routine physical and emotional abuse at the hands of authorities, includes Kodak “being placed by guards in a backless paper gown on a 4-point restraint for more than 6 hours … with no access to a bathroom,” according to documents acquired by TMZ. The TMZ report, launched earlier today (September 22, 2020) also includes claims of torture and religious suppression. Additionally, Kodak’s Twitter account updated fans and media about his alleged abuses back in May with one tweet stating that the prison refused to give him credit for time served and that he was beaten with a metal object while restrained in handcuffs by no less than seven guards at Big Sandy penitentiary.
For clarification, Kodak Black is currently serving an almost four-year sentence, on weapons charges. He is facing additional prosecution for lying about his criminal records while attempting to purchase six handguns on two different occasions.
The lawsuit has then been furthered with Kodak’s legal team of attorneys Bradford Cohen, Robert Buschel, and Jonathan Schwartz, who are also threatening to sue the Bureau because the rapper does not have proper access to a rabbi, claiming that his religious liberties continue to be infringed upon.
